From reciting a poem about a tarantula to performing Shakespeare pieces and practising public speaking skills, Speaking Works is as much for the budding actor as for those just wanting to gain confidence in speaking. Children learn best when they are having fun so we do just that whilst helping them to speak up, express themselves and develop their listening skills through storytelling, performance and role-play. Each child also has the opportunity to improve their vocal/physical communication technique for exams.

Through preparing for LAMDA examinations pupils gain a better grasp and appreciation of language, poetry and performance. Pupils can even gain UCAS points through successful completion of exams at the higher grades (6-8).

Please contact us to join a class, waiting list or attend a TRIAL.

What makes us unique? We have smaller classes to allow for individual attention and we are a speech and drama class, allowing children to build their confidence in speaking in front of others regardless of whether they like acting or not - we all need to learn to communicate better in the world today!
