Why Speech and Drama Classes?
Speaking to an audience, no matter the size, is a part of modern life at school and university. Strong communication, public speaking and performance skills are vital to our children's career success. When students have an opportunity to develop these skills from an early age; their confidence grows. We offer small group, individualised learning programmes - our programmes are filled with a range of texts, and important skills that they will use over their lifetime. It does not matter if your student is shy, confident, drama mad or somewhere in between -our fun classes focus on developing the individual. We regularly work with students who have a range of learning challenges including reluctant readers. Our teachers are warm, friendly and take a strength based approach to coaching. All students work towards an end of year assessment as well as end of term performances. They are so pleased when they receive their badge and certificate.
Skills not taught at School
Junior and Middle School is an important time to start developing Public Speaking skills - our programme includes these important skills that are often not taught at school: speaking extempore on any topic, developing visuals and slides for presentations, interview skills, a welcome and thank you speech, impromptu speaking. We also offer pair and private classes for students who want smaller group options.
