Dream it

Believe it

Achieve it

Esteem is a professional theatre academy that has face to face and online classes for children and young adults from 6 to 19 years of age. Our teachers are industry professionals who have trained and worked in West end, Film, TV, Stage and much more. We offer classes and training in Acting & Drama and Musical Theatre and we also have visiting practitioners that offer various other areas that help the children in their development.

Here at Esteem we welcome children of all levels. Our emphasis is on role play and imagination, as well as performance. Although in many children we see the blossoming of a lifelong career in performing arts, our emphasis is clear - developing skills for life!

​​We love to watch our students grow by working on their individual confidence, communication and language, physical development and also personal, social and emotional development.

Mental health is a growing area of concern for many parents as their children grow up. These things can be really daunting for adults to talk to children about. At Esteem we incorporate drama therapy to help children and young adults develop a greater self-esteem through drama exercises. We allow the students to express themselves in a safe and validating environment and present them an alternative way of communicating and expressing their fears and other difficult emotions. We aim to help children and young adults build their self-esteem and confidence as well as build and extend skills for those natural born performers.

Regular performance opportunities are provided alongside exams in each discipline. At Esteem we are always working towards a show to give you the best opportunity to develop skills and show them off! We also offer private tuition, regular trips, entry into national competitions and much more.

Fantastic drama school

My child has developed so much in confidence since joining Esteem. They do both online and group classes and the staff are so lovely. Such a professional academy. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get into theatre or are already experienced to further their skills. They perform every year at The Arena theatre and also have industry guests to teach the kids. Fantastic company and amazing staff who offer a friendly, safe and enjoyable place.
