Scholarships and Bursaries

The Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School believes passionately that all children, regardless of financial background, should have access to high quality performing arts training to help increase confidence, self-esteem and transferable life skills.

Thanks to various Trusts / Foundations we are able to offer some full and partial scholarships in 2022 to students that may struggle with fees.

We are currently accepting applications for our scholarship places starting in January 2022. You can apply at anytime but the sooner the better.

Parent interviews for these scholarships will be taking place throughout January and February.

The application form for each fund is the same. Once you fill it in, the head office will be able to ascertain which criteria you come under. The final question on the initial application asks:

Please explain how you think your child will benefit from a scholarship from the Fiorentini Foundation.

Under this section you can put which of the below scholarship headings you fall under. But please do not worry if you are not sure. If you fall under more than one category you only need to fill in the form once.

Please note, that if your child is awarded a scholarship they and their parent will be required to follow our terms and conditions which ensure the quality of our provision remains high.

Expectations if successful:

If your child is successful in being awarded a grant you as the parent will be required to fill in one or two questionnaires about the impact that this grant has had. You must also be willing for us to write a case study about your child and their success throughout our programme. Ideally we will be able to use photos of your child for reporting purposes but will only do so with your permission. If there are any safeguarding issues we will ensure your child remains anonymous. But we will need your support in filling in questionnaires for reporting purposes to ensure we continue to get funding.
