As a parent of 3 children, each with different hobbies, interests and friends. I know first hand all the effort that goes into finding these activities.

So we’ve taken the hassle (or at least quite a bit) of your hands and put together this list below of the best activities and summer schools that Greenwich and our surrounds have to offer. We’ve got Drama, Dance, Football, Rugby, Tennis, Arts, Circus Skills.

Whenever one of our students lands a leading role on TV, Film or the West End stage we obviously jump up with joy. But what fills the Fiorentini Team with most pleasure is how we witness week-in-week-out the confidence, self-esteem and life skills that are developed amongst our students. As an Independent Stage School, we are proud to be able to devote time and commitment to ensuring the happiness and progression of each of our students.
