"Both my kids 7 and 10 years old attended StsgeKool for the 2016-17 school year. They thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the musical universe. They have been taught to act, sing, dance and put together some wonderful acts and end of term shows. Unlike so many other activities of this kind, StageKool is unique because of the dedication of John throughout the year and the fact that he is always joined by various other performers of the West End who have been involved in the production of these great masterpieces. The lessons are taught with laughter and discipline. I highly recommend it to young kids who like musicals as well as the ones who have never been exposed to theatre or stage performance- boys and girls!"

“What a difference Stage Kool has made to William. It has really increased his confidence on every level. Stage Kool really is the highlight of his week, which really is a testament to your very hard work .... You really should be incredibly proud of what a difference you are making to so many children this will be an experience that will be with them forever. We are so grateful to you it is great to see William doing something he really enjoys. Thank you “
“My daughter Millie aged 7 started going to these classes about 8 months ago and hasn’t looked back. She started going as she was always keen to perform but lacked confidence to perform in front of other people. John and Sam are true professional actors and have had a huge impact on Millie; helping her develop confidence in singing acting and dancing. She looks forward to Saturday mornings and would not miss a week! By attending Stage Kool she has improved her confidence at school, with teachers and friends; I would recommend the school to any parent”
"What a fantastic group… Marnie, aged 13 years has attended many different performing arts groups, so we feel that we can compare...... John and Sam have such qualities and skills which enable them to work with the childrens own qualities, producing a relaxed but stimulating and ordered environment for them to enjoy singing, dancing and drama.
Marnie looks forward to each week, continuing the singing and dancing through out the week in her bedroom. The additional guest teachers that are invited into classes only enhance the childrens excitement and interest in the different elements of performing arts.
It’s also great as a parent to have the opportunity to speak to the teachers informally and at the end of the classes and to watch the group work together on their latest work. Additionally there are no extra costs.
Keep up the brilliant work everyone and thank-you for inspiring Marnie."
"We tried a few of the more well known drama schools around the area but nothing compared to the warmth and fun of Stage Kool - we wish we’d found them sooner!! Now my daughter gets up on a Saturday morning and says “ yes…it’s Saturday…it’s drama” You have to be doing something right to get that response from a 10 year old! Thanks!”
