School Fees

Acting Up offers the first session free of charge as a taster session, followed by a 6 week trial period where fees can be paid weekly before the session until you are happy your child has settled and Theatre School is something they wish to continue. After this time fees are to be paid on a term by term basis. As a parent/guardian you will be held responsible for payment, even if your child does not attend a class. This encourages regular attendance that will enable your child to progress more quickly. Pupils with outstanding invoices will be asked to stop lessons until the balance is cleared. School fee's depend on the age of your child and which classes he/she attends, please contact us for further information.


It is compulsory that all pupils attend in school uniform. Hair must be well groomed for all subjects and jewellery should not be worn at any time. Only pupils who are in their trial period will be allowed into lessons without uniform. Uniform can be order at Theatre School or by email or telephone. Uniform order sheets can be found in reception, uniform can only be collect when it has been paid for.  

Should I expect to pay additional fees?

No, unlike other school's we do not charge for extra rehearsals.  When working towards productions we aim to keep costumes to a minimum in order to keep cost low for parents. However, there will be times when you maybe required to buy 1 or 2 items.

Child Protection

At Acting Up, we recognise the importance of providing a safe and secure environment for all our students. All members of our staff, whether paid or volunteering, are required to apply on a regular basis for Enhanced Clearance through the DBS.  Acting Up children are taught by highly specialised teachers & instructors. In addition the children are supervised by our principal and cared for by our teaching assistants & chaperones. We encourage anyone of any age who has ANY concerns about a child to contact either the school principal or a LADO officer without hesitation.

Pupil Behaviour

We are a theatre school and expect the students to behave with respect for fellow students. We will not tolerate bad behaviour of any kind, including

  • Continual disruption to the running of the school & lessons.
  • Mental/Physical abuse of other members or teachers/principals.
  • Swearing, bad language or inappropriate behaviour.

Should your child exhibit any signs of bad behaviour the principal will decide the most appropriate course of action. It may result in expulsion from the school. Where necessary the parent/guardian will be kept informed.
