An independent specialist college for young disabled adults with a passion for the performing arts.
Rated "Good" by OFSTED and the CQC.

“I started the Orpheus Centre in 1998 because of a long-held belief that young disabled people – just like their non-disabled peers - gain confidence by performing  in public and being applauded.  We don’t train young disabled people to be professional performers – we are a specialist college teaching them the skills they need to live independently.   What makes us different is that we use the performing arts to give our students the self-belief to use those skills when they leave us.  The last twenty years have proved that this works!” Sir Richard Stilgoe, founder and trustee.

For parents

If your son/daughter or young person is aged between 18 and 25 and has a physical and/or learning disability we’d love for them to join us.
