Teen Speech, Drama and Acting Classes (1st-6th Year)
Our class for teenagers is three hours long, roughly split into three individual hours as below:
  • 1 hour – voice, communication, team building and improvisation – this section of the class focuses on building clear, confident, creative communication.
  • 1 hour – group acting, devising, and movement – this section of the class contains all of the group performance work including scripted and student-devised material.
  • 1 hour – solo performance work – during this part of the class students work on solo performance work and scene partner work e.g. duologues, monologues, poetry performance, reading aloud.

During our Autumn Term (Late August/Early September to December) students prepare build foundational skills in voice, acting and movement and prepare solo performance material for showcasing in our end of term class showcase and (optionally) our internal competition and external exams. In the Winter Term (January to Easter) the students prepare for a large scale production taking place in a professional theatre. In our Spring term (Easter to June) our students cover a range of performing arts skills such as movement, stage combat, design and devising and more.
