SKU: N/A Categories: ,


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 students prepare for a large scale production taking place in a professional theatre. During our Winter and Spring terms students work on a range of solo and group material for presentation in showcases, competitions and for either Speech and Drama, Acting or Performing Arts exams delivered at the end of the school year by Trinity College London.
