Richmond Adult Community College (RACC)

RACC is an adult college with over 2,000 courses that range from key skills for the workplace to academic qualifications and lots of leisure courses in arts, music, languages and technology. We really do have something for everyone.



Our Drama School offers a number of courses, each of which has a focus to suit different options and requirements. Many students now work in film or television, in the theatre and in companies touring this country and abroad. Our most famous former student is Hollywood actor, Tom Hardy!


Our Jazz School courses are delivered by tutors of national and sometimes international renown who have a wealth of experience of the British Jazz Scene.



This year is an exciting time at RACC. We are opening new facilities as we bring all our courses together in one place. We have invested in a new arts building and theatre, built new classrooms and have refurbished many other areas of the College to create a truly outstanding place to learn.
