The aim of the Academy is to help young people, 5-17 years, develop:

  • Enthusiasm
  • Confidence
  • Self Esteem
  • Conversational ability
  • Social Skills

These aims are achieved through a highly developed, original, drama programme. Each lesson is carefully planned. Curriculum includes introductory activities, speech, verbal dynamics, creative movement, mimes to music, language development, structured improvisation, dialogue development, snippets, scene starters, mini-scripts, parent day presentations, end of year productions. Above all, our classes are fun!

All Principals and teachers have undergone extensive training in Helen O’Grady curriculum and teaching methods and, naturally, all are CRB checked. Principals visit classes regularly, monitoring children’s development and providing ongoing support for the teacher. Each lesson stimulates students to be fully involved and motivated.

All students attend a one hour lesson, each week of the school year. With a continually updated and developing curriculum, children can join at the age of 5 and stay with us until 16 and never repeat a single lesson! Classes are held throughout the week in different locations, please visit Classes tab for local contact details.

In the summer term all classes present their end of year productions. All children love to dress up!
