WHY CHOOSE FSD
Frances’ School of Drama (FSD), established 23 years ago, is one of a kind. An Independent Drama School where every child matters. It’s like a big family , where everyone is welcome and no one forgotten. All our teachers are fully qualified, enthusiastic and approachable.
We find that our mix of children with talent, with talent waiting to be found, with confidence that needs a little boost, or simply with a love for performing, provides a friendly, hardworking atmosphere for all students.
At show time the classes often mix together , so younger ones get a chance to work with the older ones, often their idols, and older ones get the chance to help the younger ones - a great learning curve.
When the school was developed in 1995, we created 6 simple aims that are still the core of all our teaching today. They are:
- to develop the art of acting
- to improve speech and communication skills
- to increase confidence
- to work as a team
- to encourage and support the artistic potential in every child.
- to have fun!
For those that wish to take their drama to the next level, advice and support is given for auditions into the profession and into drama schools. Recent pupils have obtained places in ArtsEd, Mount View, GSA, Rose Buford College and LSMT.
