In addition to weekly timetabled Drama lessons, we offer pupils the opportunity to receive individual Drama tuition.
Here pupils have the opportunity to develop their performing skills, knowledge and understanding through one-to-one tuition and group lessons. These lessons are offered during the School day and are set on a rotational timetable.
Pupils attending these extra lessons are encouraged to take a nationally recognised LAMDA qualification, which can be used when applying to university.
LAMDA tuition is provided by Mrs C Cooper who also runs the Arts Academy.
Caroline has been teaching for over seventeen years and completed her Drama degree at Bretton Hall College.
