What happens in the Club?
Every school is unique and our syllabus is tailored to fit the individual needs of each venue. Below is a general outline of our classes.
In the first term of the academic year we focus on using drama to develop social skills such as good listening, confident voices and empathy. The classes are a fun mixture of drama games, songs, movement and improvisation.
In the Spring Term we build on this to work towards a performance – learning songs, poems and dialogue improves students’ literacy skills and builds academic confidence. The experience of performing together creates a very powerful sense of achievement.
In the Summer Term our pupils follow the LAMDA performance poetry syllabus, with an optional exam at the end of term. Our brilliant results speak for themselves, last year 84% were awarded distinctions and 16% received Merits. With learning poems at the heart of the new curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 this is a fun way of getting children excited by language (and can earn your children UCAS points)
We teach LAMDA in our termly classes every Summer, and all year round via private tuition.
Our results are exceptional – last year we had a 100% pass rate, with 84% of children awarded “Distinction”.
LAMDA tuition can be delivered digitally, taught either 1:2:1 or in small group classes.
What is LAMDA?
Summer term is our LAMDA term with optional exams at the end of term.
Have fun with performance poetry: “Be Glad Your Nose is On Your Face” is one of our favourites! Perform your favourite Musical Theatre song! We all love Bugsy! But there’s so many other songs to sing!
In our Teens class get stuck into acting pieces and gather those valuable UCAS Points with LAMDA.
Beth, Queens Park mum
My son and daughter love going to Drama Queens and come home really energised and enthusiastic after their classes. They have taken the LAMDA exams in Summer terms, preparing for these has improved their confidence hugely.
The actors who lead the classes are absolutely brilliant with kids and incredible at what they do. I would heartily recommend Drama Queens to anyone wanting an engaging activity for their child.
Our Tuesday classes are led by professional actors, who bring all the buzz
and fun of their profession to your children!
Small Talk is an enchanting pre-school programme for young children.
As they make the journey through this step-by-step story experience, the Small Talk box unravels with sensory props and toys to engage and inspire.
Small Talk is designed to promote key social skills through endless drama fun and games. And the stories of the Alien and his exploits are lively, interactive fun.

Younger years progress through our unique SMALL TALK programme, role playing the colourful adventures of Mr Alien. To develop their confidence and social skills.
Older age groups enjoy actors’ physical and vocal warmups and drama exercises, developing clear speech, focus, memory skills and confidence. We create theatre through improvisation and devising scripts. We put these skills into practice with the children's performances.
Performances include everything from their versions of Medea and Hamlet to Alice in Wonderland and Bugsy Malone!

ADVENTURES IN TOYLAND
Impress your friends with a show performed especially for your child and his/her guests.
Our show “Adventures in Toyland” is colourful, funny and ultimately irresistible to children, with in-built opportunities to join in.
It has been written to suit the very young (2 to 7yrs) as well as being enjoyable for parents and older siblings.
We have designed the show so that it can fit in a small space if required (your sitting room). This is the ideal opportunity to introduce your child to the joy of “live theatre” without having to negotiate the additional stress of box office bookings, traffic, parking etc.
NB:We require advance booking of TOYLAND as we need to schedule in rehearsals for our professional Actors.
