One of NLPAC’s main objectives is to give children and young people opportunities regardless of background and financial status. NLPAC aims to provide quality, affordable performing arts activities for all young people.

Because of this, generous talent based and ad hoc scholarships are offered to those families who struggle to pay fees. Many students benefit from being given this opportunity and it has enabled individuals to flourish in subjects they thought they might never be able to.

Ad hoc scholarships are allocated at the discretion of the Principal.

Our annual scholarship award, named in the memory of actress Charlotte Coleman, is open for all students to apply for.



The Charlotte Coleman Scholarship was set up to give a talented student the opportunity to develop their skills in Dance, Drama and Music.

Each year students compete in our scholarship showcase performing a solo of their choice to a panel of judges and a theatre full of friends & family. The lucky NLPAC student is given a whole year of free group classes as well as one year of a private singing or music lesson.

More About Charlotte

Charlotte Coleman was born and raised in North London where she lived until her tragic and untimely death in 2001. Charlotte’s work spanned every decade of her life, starting as a very successful child actress playing lead roles in the television shows “Worzel Gummidge” and the “Marmalade Atkins” series. Unlike most other child performers, Charlotte went on to equal her early success as an adult and became an instantly recognisable actress, bringing her own unique style to roles on radio, television and film – a field in which she worked continuously. In 1991, Charlotte was nominated for the BAFTA Best Actress award for her performance in the challenging television drama “Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit”. In the same year, she was also nominated as Best Actress in The Charrington Fringe Awards for her stage role in “Our Own Kind”. Recognition also followed with the Royal Television Society Best Performance Award for a Scripted Performance for “Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit”, and a BAFTA Best Supporting Actress nomination for the highly acclaimed “Four Weddings and a Funeral”. The latter brought her worldwide fame for her eccentric and lovable performance as Scarlett.
