Reading and writing

Perform can boost reading and writing skills

Research shows that children who participate in drama, dance and singing have better reading and writing skills.

This may be because they have learnt to create images in their minds while reading or developed their imagination thereby improving their creative writing. Whatever the reason, drama is now seen as essential in teaching literacy skills and giving children a lasting love of books and language.

And it's not just literacy. A study by the National Theatre showed children with experience of drama workshops scored higher in Maths SATS as well. So regular Perform classes could make a big difference to your child's performance at school.

Olivia is just brilliant! My son and daughter are very different characters; Olivia is marvellous with them both. She is encouraging, fun and extremely professional. I have recommended this class to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

Gemma is brilliant, she has been amazing with Neve and her brother Luke who has been attending for 2 years. Can't praise her enough!

It's brilliant. Karen is a sensational teacher - you should clone her. Her enthusiasm is second to none. She is perfect and we are very lucky that we have her. She deserves an award for energizing the kids and being brilliant. Sam loves her and so did Jack.

Charlotte and Georgia are super - really professional and a credit to Perform.

Clearly contact with parents is built into the Perform structure, but Melissa's kindness and enthusiasm has been amazing. Melissa has been so helpful, offering great advice and being on hand to reassure Viva (and me!). I could not have asked for a better response

The teachers are absolutely brilliant

Both my boys absolutely love their Perform teachers and were particularly excited to have a male teacher! We couldn't be happier.

– Clare Dando

The teachers are very enthusiastic which makes it fun for the children. We decided to sign Esme up to Perform to help improve her confidence and encourage her to speak up in a crowd. I was really pleased to hear feedback today that she had said her lines very loudly.

Vicky and Emily both seem to really engage with both my children and make them both feel important. Building their confidence and improving their skills.

I cannot praise highly enough the enthusiasm Karen and Annie have in the class, which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable and really fun Sunday morning for our Ava!
