What should they wear?

 Your child should wear something comfortable e.g., t-shirt, shorts/leggings, and bare feet or leotard and tights if they have them.

How do I pay my invoice?

We offer various payment options, including direct debit, to help spread the cost of your payments.

What are the performance opportunities?

Our annual summer show takes place in July and incorporates all students within the school. Few schools have retained a production every year, but we consider it to be vital that students acquire the art of live theatre performance. This is one of the highlights of our year, and so much fun for students and parents alike.

We also have a competition squad who regularly perform at festivals, competitions, and theatre productions. Competition squad performers are selected through audition only and must be studying a minimum of 3 genres with us including Ballet and attend our weekly ‘Masters’ training programme.
