What Parents think of us

“I was really pleased to see how my son’s confidence and concentration had improved since last year. How did you persuade him to stand still?”

“We have enjoyed seeing all the end of year productions and watching our daughter develop and mature.”

“You all put so much work in to make the end of year show such a success.”

“I would like to thank you for your dedication in inspiring our two boys.”

“Thank you for a fantastic show and a really great year.  Max loves drama so much he’s even willing to put down his lego to rush to class, and never says he’s too tired (unlike everything else!)”

“I was happily surprised on how enthused & overjoyed my daughter was after the play, she seemed to be on adrenaline…! I think she was amazed that she had performed on stage.”

“Thank you so much for all your amazing teaching and help this year with the Helen O’Grady Drama. Matthew absolutely loves his Saturday mornings and really thoroughly enjoyed playing the lead role of King Arthur last week in their fantastic play ‘The Sword in the Stone’ – We were ever so proud of him!!”
