Edinburgh Acting School was first launched in Edinburgh by founder and foremost principal Anna Tinline in 1982, offering drama classes for adults and children from all over Edinburgh. Since then 1000's of students have walked through the doors of the school, in its various venues. Taken over by Kirsty Halliday in 2011 the school continued to expand and it's reputation as one of Edinburgh's most well-established and successful schools continued.
In 2017 the school changed hands once more to the current creative director Stephen J Graham-Martin who has continued to take the school from strength to strength and has worked closely with the teaching team to develop a programme that serves all kinds of students, enthusiasts and professionals.
