My daughter has been attended A Mind Apart's drama classes since September 2013 and it is absolutely her favourite activity of the week. She can be quiet and a bit overwhelmed by larger personalities at school, but from the first week at drama she felt comfortable and says she's made lots of friends. She loves all the activities they do and is motivated to go every week, and it has really helped with her confidence.Read More

My daughter has really enjoyed the drama classes and talks about what they have done at each session. Staff are friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed the group performance and my daughter loved the chance to get up on stage.

Thoroughly professional staff. The drama classes provide artistic outlet for my child. He always comes home enthusiastic about the class and activities. Along with fun and games there is the opportunity to take part in productions and performances through the year. Great value for money too.

My 6 year old has been going to the evening drama class for a few months now and she loves it. She has grown in confidence as the weeks have gone by and she is learning lots of new theatre and drama skills.
As others have said, the class is quite late for a school night though, not finishing until 7:30pm. I would love for it to finish just 30 mons earlier. But at the moment the benefits of my daughter attending do outweigh the late night each weekRead More
My eight year old daughter attended the drama sessions for youngsters in the school holidays and really loved it. The only small negative is that the sessions do not start early enough and finish late enough to cover a full morning/afternoon for working parents. This would be a very good value holiday club.

My 7 year old son went to a week long workshop and loved every minute! My only complaint is that the regular evening session is run a little too late for him to attend (although the age range is quite broad so is suitable for older ages). I'd recommend it and am looking forward to the next holiday workshop.
