"It’s the best decision I’ve made joining the Drama Kids franchise"

"We get fantastic business support alongside a unique curriculum which is so much fun to teach. We are lucky to have a network full of ideas to always continue growing our business. It also allows me to have a good work/life balance, being able to raise a family and do a job I love. Working with the students is the highlight of each day, seeing them grow in confidence over the years is so rewarding."

Katie Anderson - Principal, Gloucestershire.

"I have been Principal for 10 years now. Before this I was a teacher at the academy for 2 years. Every year feels fresh and exciting as ever, with updates to the classes and welcoming new faces. I still teach students now from when I first started and it's been special seeing them grow. Our TA used to be a student too, as she's never wanted to leave. It really feels like a family."

Andréa Wright - Principal, St. Helens & North Cheshire

"Being a franchisee for Drama Kids means I can support my family by doing what I love! Nurturing children, helping them grow and develop in confidence and creativity. Building long-term bonds with them and their families.

Our inspiring curriculum still excites me after 16 years of teaching. Support from the Head Office team is outstanding: ongoing training in running a business, alongside building and teaching successful classes. Most importantly they listen to and value my thoughts and opinions."
