About the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Dumfries House partnership
Currently, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offers strings and modern ballet programmes at Dumfries House, giving young people the opportunity to access high-quality, specialist tuition in the beautiful surroundings of this 18th century Palladian mansion, set in a 2,000-acre estate.
Dumfries House is one of Scotland’s architectural jewels and was saved from closure by HRH the Prince of Wales (known in Scotland as the Duke of Rothesay) in 2007 to become a centre of education and regeneration, offering training opportunities to the local community in engineering, art and hospitality.
With Dumfries House wishing to add performing arts to its growing portfolio, a partnership with Royal Conservatoire of Scotland was formed in 2016 through HRH the Prince of Wales, who is patron of both institutions.
