The school for Brats
School to the stars - Amy, Leona and Kate attended here.
Location: 60 The Crescent, CR0 2HN
Description: The 'BRIT School' is Britain's only FREE Performing Arts and Technology School. It is an independent, state funded City College for the Technology of the Arts, the only one of its kind dedicated to education and vocational training for the performing arts, media, art and design and the technologies that make performance possible.
Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Jessie J, Kate Nash, Katy B and Adele are among its former students... an why - well, it gets funding from the Brit Awards to train the next generation of stars.
As a school for 14-19 year olds, it's unique and pioneering approach to education means it's not a stage or fame school...but recognises that most of the students intend to make a career in the arts, entertainment and communications industries.
That said, Amy's been awarded with a 'Record of the Year' and 'Song of the Year' Grammy so they must be doing something right
Schools in for Summer!
