What happens in Drama classes?

How many LEADA performances are there each year?
One showcase performance for parents, friends and family in February.
One Major theatre production of their creation with full professional technical support, staging and costume in July.
LEADA members often take part in festivals/events throughout the year

How will LEADA assess a member’s progress?
Members are assessed through their engagement in activities. Teacher observation identifies skills and targets achieved and this is reported to parents. There are no formal exams taken. Members are actively encouraged and praised for their successes, perseverance and effort.

Is there a uniform?
At LEADA we believe that children should simply be themselves, free to express their personality through the clothes they choose to wear. There is no need for a uniform. We do however need to be practical so we ask that members wear clothes they feel comfortable in and can wear safely in physical activity.

Will they be safe?
All classes are supervised by qualified adults holding current DBS certificates and Chaperone Licences. Members and tutors are expected to treat others with respect and kindness. Established members are encouraged to welcome and befriend new members and help them to settle in. All are encouraged to persevere and work together, take responsibility and show consideration to others.
