You don’t need any experience to join us, just lots of enthusiasm.

We care for each and every one of our students and are confident that they will thrive in a friendly safe environment, whether in our weekly sessions, after-school clubs or summer schools.

“My daughter loved doing the Matilda summer workshop. She had a lot of fun and made some new friends too. The academy really took care of the kids and put on a brilliant performance at the end of the week. “

Our Ethos

We believe that fun should start with drama, not end with it! Our classes give children of all abilities a pressure-free environment in which to enjoy and express themselves.

The atmosphere within the class is always our priority at Wings Academy. It is a place, first and foremost, where friendships are born.

We focus on the three main areas of performing arts – drama, dance and singing and all sessions are taken by fun and enthusiastic teachers who are fully DBS checked and first aid qualified.

We have had our fair share of success stories, with Wings Academy students going on to take their next steps into the performing arts industry, into further training, and even performing on the London West End stage.

“My daughter did the greatest showman this year and Matilda last year. She has such an amazing time can’t wait for next year!!”

Summer Schools

Wings Academy are proud to run week-long summer schools every summer for a more intensive experience.

They are immensely popular with children, who leave with new friends, boosted confidence, and a sense of true achievement.

Wings Academy have held highly successful summer schools for Matilda and The Greatest Showman and we have performed many showcase shows including scenes from Wicked, Shrek, Hairspray, Les Miserables, Grease, High School Musical and Legally Blonde.

Our summer schools give children the chance to be part of a popular show with great songs and dances, and includes a performance on the final day in front of as many friends and family as we can cram into our theatre.

Parents, meanwhile, get a week’s worth of that all so precious relief during the holidays! Sit back, and let us help them entertain you instead!

“Charlotte had an amazing week at the Matilda summer school. She definitely will attend future summer schools.”
