Curriculum Based, After School, PPA & Enrichment


You can feel secure in the knowledge that award-winning Footlights will deliver stimulating and educational drama, dance, singing and art classes that will unlock your children’s imaginations. Our engagement will also help them to develop their vital with transferable skills such as working in a team, improving their confidence and raising their aspirations.


How We Do It

Footlights enriches your curriculum with subjects that are both fun and have genuine educational value. For example, when we teach your children about literature and music, we also discuss history, to give the play or song its context. We also have to address timing and counting, which engages them in numeracy.

We cover many cross-curricular topics and skills, with a focus a practical, physical approach to learning to complement your core subjects.

The Footlights Team includes professionally trained teachers. We can tailor classes to the individual needs of your school and, where possible, we ensure that there is a link with National Curriculum requirements. We can provide schemes of work which your tutors can and cross reference to the National Curriculum.

We also offer evaluations, written feedback, video evaluations, viva voce (oral examinations) and photographs at your request, so children and young people can be accredited for their work.


The duration of our time with you

We can come into your school for a full year, one term or weekly.


The size of groups that we work with

We can provide activities for the whole year group or for a specialist group (e.g. gifted and talented or underprivileged).

Whichever you decide, we ensure our provision is optimised to suit your school and your pupils.

I have known Jo Fisher for over 5 years and during that time have had the opportunity to witness first-hand the excellent work she and her team are doing at Footlights. Footlights offers opportunities for children to experience the arts in a safe, creative and friendly environment and equips them with many of the necessary tools they need in other areas of their lives. Jo is absolutely committed to creating high quality creative learning opportunities for children and young people through the arts and the results she produces are consistently impressive.
