Here’s what people say about actfirst…..
I stumbled across actfirst’s summer school a few years ago and my children have been every year since. Jacquie is an inspiring teacher who really gives every child confidence and develops their abilities. My daughter has also attended actfirst evening classes and enjoyed them thoroughly, participating in some lovely performances. Both my children have enjoyed enormously and gained greatly from Jacquie’s LAMDA tuition, which has boosted their confidence as well as gaining UCAS points. My daughter is now a member of the Rose Youth Theatre and had a leading role in The Rose production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: we are all convinced that Jacquie’s encouragement and expert tuition gave her the confidence and skills to gain these opportunities. Helen, Hampton Hill.
“What a fantastic show you put on, my whole family enjoyed it so much. Before Sophia joined your drama group she was very shy but I have notice a difference in her. She speaks up a lot more in public and full of confidence with her peers and teachers in school.” S Bennett
“My daughter has been coming to actfirst drama for 5 years now and it has helped her grow so much in confidence and her acting ability has improved beyond belief. Jacquie also tutors for LAMDA examinations and she has helped tutor my daughter to achieve a distinction in her grade 6 examination. Jacquie is a true professional and the children love coming to her classes because they achieve so much through hard work but have lots of fun along the way.”- T Gilmour, Twickenham[
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done for Ellen. She joined your class at six and has over the last four years gained so much from you. Her confidence has grown significantly, from the quiet shy little girl to a confident young lady who loves drama and performing above everything. Thank you for all of your hard work and support through her examinations, I am so proud of her.
Keep up the good work, you do such a fantastic job and we were lucky to find you.” – Suzanne S., Walton-On-Thames
“My son adores his drama class and is inspired and stimulated by the work they do there. It’s amazing what the class manages to achieve each term and I have watched him grow in confidence and ability over the two years that he has been doing the class. The teaching is first rate.” – M Gallagher. Twickenham
“Since attending actfirst drama club, teachers have noted how my daughter’s reading aloud skills and general confidence have improved. Little wonder, since Francesca has experienced performing with children of all ages from different schools, to packed houses on real stages, such as the Hampton Hill Playhouse and Normansfield Theatre. This is definitely one after-school activity I never have to drag my child along to!”- G Daly, Twickenham
“actfirst (over a number of years now) has helped to give my children confidence, as well as being fun. Jacquie’s enthusiasm, energy and supportive and caring approach is great! They particularly love the summer schools

“Natasha was very pleased with her Lamda results. It’s the first distinction she has received! –
