The Academy of Speech and Drama

The Academy of Speech and Drama is committed to building the confidence,

creativity and communication in children encouraging them to excel in school

and beyond. We have a fantastic track record with many of our students making

huge improvements in the classroom and socially.

Our weekly peripatetic classes are held during the term time in blocks

of 10 weeks at lunchtime or afterschool. We can also be booked to cover PPA time.

Professional and experienced tutors, trained in Drama/English, all fully DBS checked

All we require is a space large enough for our classes. There is no cost to the school for afterschool and lunchtime classes, pupils pay us directly for their lessons. There is a fee for PPA cover.
