Tell Us Your Thoughts!

So that we can continue to develop our centre we would be interested in some feedback from our regular pupils & their parents!

Can you tell us firstly “Why you initially selected ATA as your theatre school of choice?” and “why you still attend classes at our school?” Please comment below….

  • Patricia Richards I am the grandmother of a child of 9, who has grown into a confident young lady. Which in turn gives her a good attitude where ever and whenever it鈥檚 needed. She鈥檚 been at All. The Arts for some 3- 4 years and enjoys it every week taking on the yearly exams in her stride. I also have a granddaughter 15 that helps out with some of the classes. 馃憤Hide or report this
  • Heidi Samsoondar We saw a lot of social media presence and always see the ATA children performing at local events. So, thought why not do a trial for our 3 year old son, I was so impressed that he took to the class straight away. We joined to help build up his confidence. Credit to great teachers, he is really enjoying the class. Your website made it easy to book a trial too.Hide or report this
