WELCOME to our website, where you can find details of all classes currently on offer in the London Borough of Richmond.
We specialise in Trinity College Speech and Drama , Acting Skills, Communication Skills, and Musical Theatre graded qualifications, at three levels - Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced.
Students work in small groups towards their solo, duo or group exams, and enter for Trinity's London sessions at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Our ethos is centred on the development of each child's confidence and potential in small, happy groups.
We also present plays and performances, and have staged work at The Orange Tree Theatre, The London Wetlands Trust, Normansfield Theatre Teddington, and The Mary Wallace Theatre, Twickenham.

Intermediate Classes are for Grades 4 and 5, and the age range here is 11 - 14 years.
These classes are a sound preparation for qualifying years at secondary school.
This is the stage where pupils can really discover their skills and potential, and where we offer many performance opportunities alongside individual presentation.
Literary knowledge, self-confidence and team work are key to progression at Intermediate level.

Advanced Classes are Grades 6 to 8.
These qualifications carry valuable UCAS tarriff points for college and university boards, and they look great on any C.V or application.
Advanced Grades can also lead to Diplomas in Teaching or Performing.
Students usually start Advanced work at age 15 and can continue into college years and beyond.
The Trinity syllabus covers many opportunities to explore classical and contemporary texts, underpinned always with tasks which demonstrate personal creativity and imagination to release an owned performance.
