The MGA Academy of Performing Arts will open a 30,000 sq ft purpose-built campus in Barbara Ritchie House, a former tax office, in Livingston next year.

With their existing facility in Balgreen in Edinburgh, the school is hoping to triple its yearly student intake.

The expansion will allow the academy to offer more courses including masters degrees and co-validating degrees with American education agencies.

The campus will host the school’s full-time programmes and will feature 18 state-of-the-art studios, a costume department, singing rooms, a library, showers and changing areas, staff offices, a large study area and, outside, 130 parking spaces.
