All of the students seem to be loving this term and we are looking forward to some great performances at upcoming assemblies and parent watching week!
Speak Up Speech and Drama classes provide a safe environment for students to challenge themselves without feeling embarrassed or afraid of making a mistake. Drama games and improvisation are fun activities that allow students to stand up and present themselves without the pressure and hype of a “performance.”
Learning to speak well is one of the first steps to improving confidence and communication skills – every Speak Up Speech and Drama class includes some vocal training as well as the opportunity for students to practice eye contact, concentration and listening skills.
Creating drama, inventing characters and telling stories are integral parts our classes. We incorporate a wide range of poetry and prose to engage and inspire students and regularly use arts and craft activities to create special props, costumes, or puppets, which the children use in performances.

Thanks to you too. I was very impressed, so happy with the programme you run!
Thank you! My son had a lovely time this past week. All your staff are caring and inclusive which is reassuring as a parent. My son has anxiety, joining group activities is always a challenge. Your staff didn’t judge him, they welcomed him with acceptance into an inclusive environment. He is looking forward to future sessions.
I would like to compliment you and your team on the professionalism of the 2014 end of year performance. I was very impressed, and what a marvellous insight you were able to give the kids on theatre production.
