What is Theatre School?

A theatre school can benefit a child or young person with their performance skills but also in so many other ways.

It is a training setting where pupils can learn performance skills and theatre arts in an established setting under the guidance of teachers who know their subject and care passionately about it and the students in their charge. Performing on stage offers children and young people a chance to shine


Through acting, dancing, and singing students learn how to use and interpret body language, facial expressions and vocals to portray a full range of emotions, including confidence when communicating with others, whether that be one person or 500.

These same skills can be used in many professional situations and will stand our students well in later life. We all need to be able to communicate with others and the more comfortable you are with that, the more paths you can take successfully in later life.
