Overview

New location Open Day – join us for the launch of our latest location in Stratford, E20 for an open day on 1st March 2024, 6pm – 7.30pm. A chance to meet our school Principal, Agent and Teachers before attending a formal taster day in the Spring. Register your interest here.

If you are unable to make our taster day date, please get in touch and we’ll arrange an alternative for you.
Students follow a weekly timetable of Drama / Film, Singing and Dance all taught by leading industry professionals that have a wonderful rapport with young people.

At our schools, we are training students aged 7-18 years to be triple threat performers in response to what the industry is asking for more and more. We encourage our students to hone their musicality and combine this with acting and handling choreography. We have helped many students gain professional performance opportunities but we are just as interested in those children that wish to increase in confidence, self-esteem and build transferable life skills.  

Our Stratford branch provides a friendly and supportive environment where every child is free to express themselves and grow in their creative and technical abilities. If you’d like opportunities like this, join us as our next taster day by filling in an application form.

    How To Book Your Taster Day

    Next Taster Day: 26th April 2024

    We ask applicants to take part in a taster day before they join the school. This ensures we are the right school for your child. Taster students will join the school for the whole day and will attend classes with enrolled students and other taster day students. Teachers will ensure that taster students are supported and feel well looked after. Once the taster day is complete, students can then decide if they would like to join for the full term.

     If you are unable to make our Taster Day date above, please get in touch and we’ll arrange an alternative for you.

    Although term has already begun, you can contact us as places may still be available before the next taster day in certain classes. Simply fill in our easy application form to apply or email hello@afperformingarts.com.

    How We Work

    Fun & Rewarding Classes

    Students are put into groups according to their age. On their very first day they will be buddied up with one or two other students so that they have ready-made friends that can look out for them and make them feel welcome and ease their nerves.

    Most weeks students will follow a time-table of Drama /Film, Singing and Dance. Each class is just under an hour. Occasionally all the departments work together especially if working towards a showing or a music video for example. There are huge benefits to working cross-media, sometimes dance rehearsals are filmed and students may combine singing and film to make their own music video which really allows our students to feel like the professionals we are training them up to be!

    Top Industry Professionals

    All main teachers and team members are DBS checked and have undertaken Safeguarding training as well as a Covid-19 Infection Prevention & Control training. All of our classes follow a Covid-19 risk assessment and current government guidelines.

    Uniform

    Testimonials & Reviews

    “Jawad in the past had real problems with his confidence and was very badly bullied at school. Since coming to AF he has grown so much in confidence. His academic studies have gone from strength to strength. He was initially in the bottom group for English and is now in the top group. He has also gone up a class in Maths” – Abu Bakar, Father of a student

    “I am so pleased I am not starting out again in showbiz! The talent I saw from this school was superb. May all their dreams come true” – Barbara Windsor (EastEnders, Carry On films)

    “Without a school like this, these children wouldn’t have the opportunity to follow their dreams. It’s not just about talent. It is about discipline and commitment and that you can only get with a good grounding”. – Shobna Gulati (Dinner Ladies, Coronation Street)

    “Sadie was diagnosed with a crippling condition called Fibromyalgia / ME. She was at her lowest and her self-esteem had reached rock bottom and so had to attend counselling sessions. It’s been worth the cost to see the pleasure she gets when attending your school. She has transformed into a vibrant, self-confident young lady” – Chris Kidman,  Mother of a student

    “The school’s high standards and the energy and commitment of students and teachers alike are inspiring.” – Jonathan Hourigan, Former Chair of Governors for Daubeney School

    “My daughter babbles all the way home when I collect her and can’t wait to get there in the mornings. She is safe in the care of these obviously child orientated adults. Even if she doesn’t decide to take the showbiz road in the future, what she learns here will stand her in good stead for the rest of her life. I can’t praise the school highly enough.” – Mrs Bryan, Mother of a student

    Orla joined the school at the age of 8 and quickly blossomed through the dance and signing classes which helped her grow in confidence and meet an entirely new friendship group. Invisibly though she was also developing a whole range of team work and being responsible. Making sure you practised your steps and lyrics and singing not just for your own benefit but for the benefit of the team and the audience has been an important life and professional skill. When Orla was cast in the feature film ‘Song for Marion’, thanks to the Fiorentini Mosson Agency, when she worked alongside Vanessa Redgrave and Trence Stamp the crew remarked how Orla had clearly been trained in terms of how to behave on set and work with the cast and everyone involved with the production. Since then Orla has been in the feature film ‘Swallows and Amazons’, ‘Hetty Feather’, ‘Holby’ and the ‘Confession’ with Martin Freeman. I believe her success is in large part due to the skills she gained from the amazing teachers and the opportunities she was given by the school and Rhiannon at the agency. – Sheila Fitzsimmons, Mother of a student
