This in a new class for children aged between 4 and 7.This is a small class where the ratio is 2 teachers to 6 children per class. We work on literacy and numeracy and lessons are planned to suit each individual child and their own style of learning. It concentrates on confidence, fun and independent learning techniques.
The consultants are now able to take workshops into schools, colleges, support agencies and groups of all ages. We have a team of staff who will meet the needs of each booking and we promise to make a difference. We tackle issues that may be causing emotional setbacks and we are also able to aid academic progress. We use Drama as a forum technique to empower individuals and we will also use Drama to tackle subjects such as Shakespeare, history and media.
There will be several Drama classes offering many different things. Some of the classes will be based on specific techniques such as Dramatic irony, voice gesture and positioning. Some of the classes will be looking at improvisation and having fun. There will also be exam classes for those wanting to study the Trinity way!

Thank you for creating such a proud moment on Friday night for both Kevin and I and of course Jasmine, as we read her report! I read it several times as it was so lovely to hear the very positive impact she has whilst at drama club and the energy and enthusiasm she puts in.
We have made a big fuss of her and of course shown the report to the wider family, along with the much cherished star of the week trophy which Jasmine was thrilled to get last week!
We are all really looking forward to the pantomime.
Thanks again for creating such a positive, constructive and happy environment for them all at drama club, we all feel very lucky to have you!
