Well done to all my students who took their LAMDA exams in London today. You were all very professional and hopefully you all had a positive experience. A special mention has to go to Tilly Beard, Maddy Tobin and Emily Sumner who all took their Grade 8 Gold Medals. Very proud Drama Teacher.


We just wanted to say thank you to all our AMAZING students who performed today in our Christmas showing. We are always immensely proud of you all but today you all excelled yourselves. You sang, you harmonised, you danced, you acted and all with seamless confidence. The 'Billy Elliot' Section brought grown women to tears! Thank you to all the parents and extended family who constantly support our school and ex pupils who always feel they have a home to come back to. Thank you to the man in red who appeared from nowhere to add to our festive cheer. We would like to wish you all a very Merry and Happy Christmas and a Wonderful, Healthy and Happy 2015. Lots of love Andrea, Niall and Eloise ##

Hoping everyone has had a wonderful summer break. We can't wait to see everyone next Saturday 13th September for the start of the new term and hear all your holiday news. We have lots of exciting things planned.
Andrea, Niall and Eloise.


Wishing all our students who are receiving their GCSE results tomorrow the very best of luck; not that you will need it as you are all BRILLIANT. We hope you get all you wish for. But what ever the result, you are all stars.
Andrea, Niall and Eloise


Wishing everyone who is getting A level/As level exam results today the happiest of days!!! Hope they reflect the work you have put into them and do not forget that if they are not quite what you were hoping for then it really is not the end of the world.There are so many people who are great achievers who have not quite achieved the grades they needed to begin with and life is so much more than exam results..having said all of that we wish you all the best of luck and wish you all happiness!
Andrea,Niall and Eloise


Just in after a long day but not too tired to comment on the production of HONK today!!!!!
My goodness guys you really raised the bar as far as performances go!!!We really could not have wished more of you all..You sang acted danced and performed to the highest standard today and made us very very proud…We would have been praising you all if you attended another performing arts academy but the fact you all attend BAPA was staggering…sooooooo proud of you all…Thankyou so much to Alan Debra Daisy Clare Ella Eryl Amelia Anna and everyone else who helped backstage and with the production.We feel blessed to have such wonderful people around us and appreciate the work you did so much…
We managed to also raise £150 so that will be split 50/50 between the Winslow players and the Quaintwood players so we hope it will help them a little with their next productions.Winslow Players are about to embarque upon a production of Oh what a lovely war so we wish them well with that and will keep you posted as to dates.We will also let you know when Quaintwood players are performing next..Thanks for all the support you have both given us and our students…
We must also say goodbye to a few students today who are going on to other things..We wish you all the luck and happiness and look forward to seeing you all again very soon.You all know you are always welcome back to say hi and perform with us at any of our events..We are proud of every single one of you.…The support you all give each other and the way you all contribute to making BAPA such a happy environment to teach and for you guys to perfect your talents is exactly what we hoped the Academy would be and you guys have made it that way…Great talent but also great people !!!!

Back to the production for a moment just to say a huge huge well done to you all once again and look forward to starting the plays/events/etc which we have planned for next term…very very exciting to envisage how you can build on the performances you all gave today…WELL DONE and enjoy the summer break

Tastefully Offensive: Christina Bianco Sings 'Let It Go' as Famous Female Vocalists

Very funny and also an amazing talent to be able to mimic others ..and also shows (… through a song I seem to be endlessly teaching at the moment!!!) how different a song can sound with different voices…and the main reason why I tell you all never to try and sound like someone true to your own voice and be individual so people will want to mimic you!!!!

Tastefully Offensive: Christina Bianco Sings 'Let It Go' as Famous Female Vocalists delivers a daily roundup of the funniest videos and pictures on the Internet.
