More than 30 students performed a selection of scenes, poems and monologues in front of an examiner in July, with an impressive 100 per cent distinction rate from all students - a first for the academy. The highest score was from Henry Loukes, ten, who impressed with his superb monologue from Roald Dahl’s James and The Giant Peach.

Principle Bex Landsberger said: “I am extremely proud of all our students who have risen to the challenge and have worked extremely hard to achieve a remarkable set of grades, superbly supported by their coaches.” 

The academy runs on Saturday mornings at The Grange Leisure Centre where students aged 6-16 take part in sessions in singing, dance and acting, trained by industry professionals from around the UK. The academy also has a successful agency through which many students have gone on to appear in a variety of commercials and television shows.

New students interested in joining in January 2016 should contact Bex.CSA@hotmail.com
