Teacher at acclaimed Sylvia Young Theatre School is arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children

Sylvia Young OBE, 76, confirmed that a male teacher at the school had been arrested about a month ago and had left the premises with police officers.

She told the Mail that the man had worked at the school for a number of years and taught on the academic side, rather than at the stage school.

Sylvia Young opened the school in 1981 and was appointed OBE in 2005.


Sylvia Young from The Silvia Young Stage School made herself look a fool by telling the court Ben had never trained as an actor with her but when Ben’s barrister showed her the acceptance letter and receipts along with 22 pages of evidence connected with her school, she soon backed down and said she must have been mistaken.
