Speech & Drama Tuition sign-up

Speech and Drama lessons aim to develop skills in performance and communication, to broaden the children's experience of poetry, drama and literature and to improve the standard of spoken communication. Emphasis is placed on building confidence and imagination, along with producing clear speech by improving clarity, projection and expression. Children are also given the chance to learn mime and improvisation.

Pupils from Year 2 to Year 8 have the opportunity to enter local Speech and Drama Festivals, which gives them valuable performance experience. At the end of the academic year, I encourage all my pupils from Year 2 to Year 8 to take a Vanguard examination in Poetry Speaking or Acting.

Session charges:

  • All group lessons are available at a cost of £6.00 per session, normally 10 sessions a term.
  • Duo lessons are also available at a cost of £11.50 per session and these will be timetabled during the school day
  • Individual lessons are available at a cost of £15.50 per session and will be timetabled during the school day

Please note. the cost of these lessons are added to your school bill at the end of each term.
