We use a tailor-made 8 - level Evaluation Scheme in this class.  
This assessment scheme is designed to introduce students to essential drama skills, enable students to strive for better achievement and higher attainment, to enable students to set their own individual targets for learning and, most importantly, to make their drama training fun and engaging. 

Although in a group, all students are assessed individually with regular feedback and encouragement from tutors.

Students will be provided with assessment reports and target certificates throughout their learning, with regular progress reports for parents.

We  also introduce specialist workshops each term, sometimes with visiting practitioners, covering such topics as: Getting an Agent; Audition Preparation and Technique; Acting to Camera; Stage Combat; Shakespeare; Physical Theatre; Circus Skills; Puppetry; Stage Make-Up and Costume ....

This is a perfect class for any student wishing to develop their acting skills to an advanced level and to develop an understanding, through practical training, of the actor in performance, whether for fun, confidence building, GCSE preparation, auditions, Theatre, Television or Film. 

Please note Students wishing to attend the Footlights class and the ACTivate class will receive 50% discount on their ACTivate class.

This class is led and taught by Principal 
Susan Russell-Curtis and visiting practitioners.
