Our Ethos

We specialise in Lamda exams and our ethos is no pressure, as we nurture all our children, so they are ready for exams in a non pressured environment, where every student can express themselves freely and have tons of fun, while building confidence and social skills.

 

No two students are the same and therefore their learning styles will also differ.

Some of our students are budding actors and dancers and others are working towards developing confidence, public speaking and presentation skills. There is one thing, however, that all students at STRIVE poses, a passion for the arts and the desire to have fun and achieve their goals.

STRIVE is a unique kind of drama school. We use a mixture of drama, dance, movement and voice techniques across our varying syllabus to help our students achieve their full potential as they work through their LAMDA exams. Our group lessons at STRIVE are small and intimate with a maximum of 15 students per class allowing our expert tutors time to work with each individual. Our group lessons are designed to help each student grow as a performer whilst collaborating on creative ideas in peer groups. Our weekly classes are fun, high energy and are designed to let every student STRIVE to reach their true potential.

LAMDA exams are taken sporadically throughout the year when our students are confident and ready. We believe that the process is the key fundamental element of the exam. We never pressure our students to the point where drama stops being fun, we are here with them every step of the way.

We also offer bespoke 1-2-1 sessions for all ages and abilities. These sessions can either be conducted in the comfort of your own home or at one of our venues in London or St Albans. We highly recommend booking in advance as these spaces are limited and can have a waiting list.

 

Please contact our Principal Suzie on 07841018333 who will be able to discuss individual pricing for these options.

What Our Students Say About Us!

"We love Suzie and her drama sessions! All three of my kids have experienced sessions with Suzie in various groups over the last 11 years and have got really close to her!! They have all said that that she is a great teacher and makes the sessions fun and exciting. She helped them feel confident and broadened their horizons and inspired their love of acting and spoken performances in different ways. As a parent, I could completely trust Suzie's judgement on how far to stretch them and could see their confidence grow with each session. When they were small they would bound out of the room singing and laughing whatever piece they had learnt which we would then hear for days on end on repeat!! As they got older they would come out with useful little critiques on how they felt their pieces had gone or comments on the nature of their characters developments. And they always went back for more the next week...! Thanks for everything Suzie!
