'We all loved the Summer School – such a feat in a short space of time! It was so well thought out and the children all performed brilliantly, clearly enjoying the experience and working as a team. Both of my children (5 and 11) want to return to Summer School again next year. Thank you Kaleidoscope!'   Sally Jones (Parent)

This year we will have not one, but two weeks of Kaleidoscope Summer Schools. Children who come for a whole week (Monday - Friday) will have the opportunity to create a play in a week. This will be performed to family and friends each Friday. We'll have a different theme each week, so children could possibly do both Summer School weeks and they would end up performing two separate plays.

Alternatively it is possible to book your child/children for just one or two days, or for as many days as you like. Children who do not attend all five days in one week will participate in our super fun creative workshops.

Whether your child comes for a whole week, or for a day or two, they will work with our fun-loving team of theatre professionals, developing their creativity and learning new skills in Animation, Puppetry, Drama, Dance, Musical Theatre and Art.

A typical Summer School day starts with a huge outdoor treasure hunt and then we have some lively Drama warm up games which help break the ice and allow everyone to get to know each other a little better. Participants will then enjoy a series of performing arts workshops led by our team. If the weather is fine, we all have lunch together under the shade of the trees, in the beautiful grounds of Wallands School. After lunch it's time to play while fully supervised by our team. The afternoon workshops end with a games session to finish off the day.

Older students are encouraged to work at a more challenging level so they experience a real taste of life in the theatre industry. Younger children have longer breaks, more games and can work at their own level. Each class is supported by our enthusiastic team of Teaching Assistants. The activities are all structured to allow children to develop their confidence, and there are plenty of opportunities to make new friends.

Our whole team love working creatively with the children and young people. Participants are fully supervised from the moment they arrive until they leave. All of our staff have Enhanced DBS certificates and most of our team are first aid trained.

Our Summer Schools are very likely to sell out - so we suggest you book as soon as you can to ensure your child doesn't miss out. You can pay in instalments to help spread the cost.
