Hannah Kirkpatrick is our new acting teacher and Sam Pearson will be teaching film and TV.

Feedback from our students was great.

It may have been the final session of 2021, and the morning after our second performance of The Godmother, but energy levels were high. StageScreen Teacher Sam at work

The next generation of Team Purple is ready and raring to go when the new term starts. If you would like to join us, apply for a free trial session here.

We are sad to announce that our Film and TV teacher Tilley Bancroft is moving on to different, exciting projects. But we are thrilled to tell you that our new Film and TV teacher is going to be the wonderful Sam Pearson!

Sam Pearson
Sam is a local filmmaker with a BA Hons in Cinema and Photography and a passion for visual storytelling.

He has worked across the country filming live televised events, action films, commercial projects and his own personal projects.

Sam said: “It’s extremely rewarding to work with young people and help them to express themselves creatively. I’m really looking forward to guiding the students through the process of transforming a creative vision into a finished project.”

The eagle-eyed among you may recognise Sam from some work he did back with us towards our first Film Festival in 2017. We are thrilled to be welcoming Sam into our permanent team from January 2022.
