Enhance your child’s future

The Anna Fiorentini Theatre School is getting excited about its new term at Greenwich starting in September.

Many fun projects are planned including Fiorentini’s Got Talent, (Jermain Jackman, former Fiorentini student, who won last year’s The Voice UK was our winner the year before)


Having your child engage in performing arts will greatly increase their chances of employability, help with their transition from primary to secondary school and enhance their early years development.

Most employers now will not only look at what grades have been achieved in academic exams but will also want to see how “rounded” the applicants are. What involvements have they had in team-orientated activities?

Drama and creativity in general can broaden a child’s horizons. Not only do they have fun using their imagination, but they are also able to learn vital social and team building skills.

More times than not external factors have an impact on a child’s academic progression. A report by the arts education partnership revealed that school children exposed to drama, music and dance are often more proficient at reading, writing and math.

The Anna Fiorentini School prides itself on enhancing confidence, self-esteem, life skills, aspirations, public speaking, negotiating skills, punctuality and discipline in its young students.

“I have been passionate about providing arts education to children for over 15 years now because I believe that through the arts we can teach the adults of tomorrow how to communicate effectively, present themselves professionally and respond appropriately to constructive discipline. I have been told on numerous occasions that students that attend my school have improved greatly in their academic studies as a result.” Anna Fiorentini principal

Not only are the Arts beneficial for older students about to embark on a life of college and job interviews, but research has shown that early years development is also crucially effected by the inclusion of constructive play, social development and awareness of their own bodies. Pediatricians, child psychologists and educational experts all agree that children develop more fully and quickly if music, drama and dance are integral parts of their upbringing and day-to-day existence.

And then of course there is the research done that suggests there is a real need to help children develop social and personal skills during the transition from primary to secondary school. Anna Fiorentini classes manage to support children at this crucial transition period.

Thanks to our agency several students have been fortunate enough to land leading roles in EastEnders, Rev, Top Boy and on the West End stage including the Lion King, Oliver! And Matilda to name but a few.

However, the majority of our students interview for more mainstream jobs and are generally successful because of the confidence they exude and the communication skills they have developed. Being able to network in this day and age when there is so much competition is vital. Skills learnt at performing arts school from a young age go a long way in achieving this vital skill.

“The same principles that help an actor develop a heart-stopping performance can help a job seeker interview with new confidence and new success.” – Executive coach Gina Barnett quoted in Business Insider UK
