Teacher: Simon Long
Simon has had a love for drama for as long as he can remember; the very first step he ever took into drama was in fact by joining this very drama club ‘Helen O’ Grady Drama Academy’. He first started at 5 years old, originally he was a very shy and quiet boy, but as he came to the academy his confidence grew and grew into what you see at his classes today.
His interest in drama and performance increased along with his confidence and his fascination led him to take a BTEC in Performing Arts, earning a Distinction. He has been in over 40 different amateur productions so far, and has started taking roles backstage in professional productions. Now he is studying at the prestigious Rose Bruford College, learning different aspects of performance and theatre.
Simon is also the longest running Helen O’ Grady student in the world and attended his class for 16 years. He has no regrets and lots of cherished memories. He became a teaching assistant in the classes to see what it was like to teach a class, and also to learn the skills he needed to be a good and enthusiastic drama teacher. Simon is now the teacher at the very class he first attended all those years ago and loves every minute of it. He hopes that all the children will have the same fun, fascination and friendship as he did for all the years he attended, and that they grow into amazing people.
Simon is very proud to be a teacher with Helen O’Grady. He cannot imagine his life without drama, and he cannot imagine his life without the ‘Helen O’ Grady Drama Academy’.
