A rare opportunity to purchase an established business with massive scope for expansion. The current owners have retired and relocated some distance from their territory and are no longer in a position to promote their business effectively.
The centre is based in Oxshott, Surrey, a very affluent area just outside the M25 area between Junction 9 (Leatherhead) and Junction 10 (Cobham). The territory also includes Bookham/Fetcham and Chessington and several excellent private schools and good quality state schools (Total number of schools: 33).
The Main Company may be expanded to 90 students and Minis to 16 without incurring any extra costs so that profits can be doubled in a very short space of time. There is also the opportunity to offer a range of midweek and extra classes within the large territory area which is unexploited at present.

Student Numbers: Currently 35 (9 Minis, 26 Main Company)
Staff Members: 4 (Dance, Acting, Singing Teachers Main Company, 1 Minis Teacher)
Centre Costs: Venue £3,600 P/A for 1 large hall (Dance), 1 room each for Acting, Singing and Minis

I have always wanted to own my own performing arts school. Eight years ago I expected it to be a part time thing, as an income supplement, doing something I love. Now I have three schools, additional weekday classes and this has been my full time job for 5 years! My schools are my passion as well as my job.Jess Fairfield, Theatretrain Franchisee, Royston and Welwyn-Hatfield
When I took over the Chester school in 2005, I didn’t realise how quickly I would be able to turn a hobby into a business. Theatretrain provides wonderful experiences, not just for our pupils but also for our teachers and centre directors…the support between centre directors and from head office is a key part of our success.Steve Davies, Theatretrain Franchisee, Chester, Mold and Wrexham
Theatretrain is like a family; the head office team are so welcoming and gave amazing support and insight into how to run a new centre and this has continued so there is always a great support network. The wider network of Centre Directors is also so encouraging and generous of best practice sharing.Erin Griffiths, Theatretrain Franchisee, Waltham Forest
