Safe journey home and I hope I get the opportunity to meet you all again! Best wishes, Rob XOX

Presenting our wonderful Student of the Year award winners..

⭐️AM Academy - ALEX!
Alex started with us many years ago refusing to really even speak in class!! Now she’s such a key member of her group, whether it’s taking a West End leading role or encouraging others in the Academy to showcase their talent too! Alex has also made wonderful strides in her dance ability this term and we’ve been so impressed with her determination.

⭐️PM Academy - MADDIE!
Maddie’s leap in confidence over the past year has really impressed us, particularly when she chose to dance solo in this term’s showcase. Not only that, Maddie is one of those students you can always rely on to give you 1000% but also to build up those around her too! A fantastic role model, highly reliable student and a genuinely lovely person too!

Congratulations girls. We’re very proud to have you as ambassadors to the Academy.

⭐️Well done too to all of our Special Recognition and Module Award winners! It’s so fantastic to get to celebrate our amazing students again this year! ⭐️

☀️ How AMAZING were ALL of our students yesterday? ☀️

6 small groups performing socially distanced outdoor theatre (In 28 degree heat might I add!). Absolutely wonderful! We are SO proud of what you all achieved - particularly with the many changes having to be made on the day! There were some very special moments yesterday.

Thank you to our parents for following guidance so perfectly and for also being willing to melt for 40 minutes whilst watching your children perform 🥵

To those students who sadly had to isolate yesterday due to school bubble collapses. WE MISSED YOU!! Thankyou for contributing so amazingly to the rehearsal process. This is your success too!! (Special shout-out to Blue group’s Ava who performed her show to her family in the garden instead! Amazing!)

We’re absolutely buzzing (and exhausted!) today. Thankyou Team PQA for yet again guiding our students to create wonderfully creative work.

How lucky are we to run an academy on such STUNNING grounds!

☀️Well done everyone! Two weeks left of term to celebrate! Don’t miss it!☀️

Newsletters were sent out yesterday evening with lots of important information about this weekend.

⭐️Please note, there is an important survey we require parents to fill in before Saturday⭐️

Plus a little reminder to please be kind. We are keeping a 2 person limit on guests per student to keep everyone safe… not to make things difficult for you or because we don’t want to see you all! We wish more than anyone that we could welcome a giant audience along!
