For students age 5 - 16 yrs, the school puts on regular shows to put the students new skills into practice and for parents, family and friends to view the their work and progress.
Amanda Fairclough Stage and Film School aim to make the arts more available and accesible to all school children. We believe that drama isn't just about 'acting' but also provides an outlet for self expression, it develops imagination and artisitc awareness; it increases social and mental freedom, fluency of speech, self respect, self confidence and above all... it's FUN!
Drama gives students the opportunity to learn how to co-operate with others, aids orderly thinking and the ability to organise. The benefits do not only accrue through students participating actively in dramatic activity, they also learn through observing others.
Amanda Fairclough Stage and Film School provide what we hope you will see as the perfect balance of education, play and stimulation. We run to a carefully planned curriculum paying equal attention to ALL our students' needs. We are committed to a two way communication process with our parents to ensure that we have total understanding and support.
We use practical explorations on how to make, perform and respond to drama. Our workshops encourage students with:
SPEAKING AND LISTENING
CROSS CURRICULAR LINKS WITH LITERACY
USING THE CHILDREN'S OWN WORK AS A STIMULUS
DEVELOPMENT OF PRACTICAL, CREATIVE AND INTELLECTUAL SKILLS
