After School Clubs

Drama Club

Fizz’s Drama Club runs every Wednesday (Key Stage 2) and Thursday (Key Stage 1) from 3:15pm-4:15pm. Over the course of the term the children will play fun and exciting drama games, learn how to improvise, devise short performances, and work on some brilliant scripts! During the last lesson of the term, we put on a short performance to show parents just what we’ve been working on, allowing you to see just how far your future super star has progressed!

Fizz (Felicity) is a professional actress with years of experience teaching drama, dance and singing to children of all ages. Her main aims are that the children in her class increase in confidence, learn new skills and hopefully discover a new passion for performing. And of course, at the same time, have a truly brilliant time!
