Calling all 8 - 12 year olds!

Our summer school is BACK!

Monday 5th August - Friday 9th August

10am - 4pm daily 


Does your 8 - 12 year old love performing?


Develop their drama skills through games, imaginative play, role play and storytelling.

We'll take them from page to stage in just one week, with a family showcase at the end!


Under the supervision of Anna Friend, a professional drama teacher, director and performer, they'll learn how to collaborate in an ensemble piece, having fun all the way!


Anna Friend completed her PGCE at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, before founding and running Quirky Bird Theatre for 9 years, specialising in tutoring young people ages 4 -19 in performance. Her professional young company had exclusive touring rights to Dennis Kelly's DNA for four years, touring schools and professional venues. She is currently teaching Drama at St Mary's Calne, in Wiltshire, one of the top performing schools in the country.


Anna is a seasoned director and performer, she co-founded the Alma's in house company, Schoolhouse Productions, and recently debuted her solo autobiographical production at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and will be touring it across the country this Spring.
