Redroofs Theatre School is an independent theatre training school in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England.

The school was established in 1947 in London and moved to Littlewick Green in 1964 into a house that was once the home of Ivor Novello. The school currently has two bases in Maidenhead, and two theatres in Littlewick Green and Ascot respectively. Redroofs comprised a full-time school for talented children (10–18 years), a part-time school of approximately 400 and an agency open to all pupils.In 2020 the school stopped its academic provision to become a larger Part Time School for the Performing Arts only.

Former pupils include Debbie McGee, many other working industry performers, dance teachers, theatre producers, theatre directors, writers, stage managers, singers, dancers, stunt coordinators and actors.
