Paul McCartney’s ‘Fame School’ launched in Spain
• McCartney opening Liverpool Fame School
LIVERPOOL’S celebrated ‘Fame School’, co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney, has launched in Spain.
The college, which is modelled on The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) has opened in Sitges, near Barcelona.
The Institute of the Arts Barcelona (IAB) will offer training in various performing arts disciplines at foundation, degree and post-graduate levels and the first set of students are due to enrol this September.
The school includes a 200-seat theatre, dance and acting studios, video production facilities, recording studios, learning resource facility and a café and social area.
Included in the college’s curriculum will be courses in acting, arts entrepreneurship, dance, film production, musical theatre, popular music and stage management.
The Liverpool college is located in Sir Paul McCartney’s old school, the Liverpool Institute for Boys, Hope Street, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to turn it into a state-of-the-art performing arts higher education institution.
It was co-founded by Sir Paul and Mr Featherstone-Witty and opened in 1995.
LIPA has been ranked in first place for its degree courses on several occasions and is regularly among the top 10 in rankings for specialist institutions.
