The Academy: what we're all about...
Our Concept: A popular, innovative centre for the Performing Arts offering tuition in the disciplines of singing, acting and musical theatre, founded in 2008. Run by the TARGET Drama Support Service, The Academy is the fastest growing theatre education provider in Wales.
Our Promise: We believe that the performing arts should be available to everyone, from every background and with every personal need catered for. We work with education advisers to ensure that this is always the case.
Our Aim: We provide specific opportunities to thrive by offering our pupils the chance to enter for LAMDA theatre and ABRSM music examinations in order to gain a sense of achievement and some valuable first qualifications. If that's not to your taste, then we also offer Performance Assessments with no 'pass' or 'fail' but just useful advice and direction to help children progress and learn.
Our Vision: Open to all children between the ages of 5 and 16, the Academy uses techniques from theatre to inspire and assist children in both the performing arts and with personal development.
Our Support: Scholarships are available, direct from the Academy, to encourage children with special talent and bursaries provide extra financial assistance for enthusiastic performers.
Our Strategy: We are renowned for our unique balance between performance and education. Visit our Curriculum and News pages to learn more.
