Children’s drama classes reviews:-

Mariana Dias: Been going for nearly 3 years now! Best drama school I’ve ever been! I get taught such useful things for my future! Deeply recommended

Lisa Hatton:  My daughter McKenzie loves it especially the workshops xx

Vanessa Kay Marsden: My son started at Stirling Academy in January quite nervous but wanted to make a good impression. He soon relaxed and was made to feel part of the Stirling family. He absolutely loves it and his confidence grew so much in such a short space of time. His coach Kieron is so supportive. I would definitely recommend Stirling

 Michelle Seddon: My son looks forward to attending his drama classes every week

Hazel S: This is an excellent place for you or your children to learn new skills and improve your confidence, It is a very fun place

Andrea Q: My 2 daughters absolutely love coming to this academy! I would recommend them

Julia O: The children love their time here, it is very organised and a lovely atmosphere

Lisa B: Absolutely fantastic classes. My daughter attends on Thursday’s and loves it because she learned so much. The staff are brilliant and were more than helpful. They have a great rapport with all the children there.  I Would definitely recommend these classes

Craig M: My daughter Jessica attended classes at Stirling Academy for over 12 months and in that time we saw her change and grow in confidence so much. When she started she was a shy girl who struggled with social activities in large groups, now we have a little girl who is always first to put her hand up and cannot wait to join in. Her school teacher even mentioned how much she had improved with her schoolwork and her social interaction with her classmates. I can not recommend Stirling academy enough, they are a friendly professional bunch of people and nothing is ever to much trouble with them,  I know because I took a lot of their time when Jessica first started her classes

Scarlet F: Fantastic Drama school. My children attended for a long time now and they love it.  They have learned so much and never fail to come away each week with something new to show me. My children are now also represented by the academy’s agency and have both attended auditions. The staff are lovely and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone wanting to learn and have fun.
