Our Approach

For over two decades we’ve championed an exhilarating approach to theatre school education
in the theatrical arts for young people aged 6-18.

We teach our children how to Dance, Act and Sing in performing arts classes at
Springwood High School.

Our Stage school brings out the best in students, builds confidence, and gives aspiring young actors opportunities of a lifetime via our large scale London shows and our smaller local shows each year.

We accept students from areas around Norfolk, North Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire including Hunstanton, Fakenham, Downham Market and Wisbech  and surrounding areas.

No auditions are necessary as we teach them everything they need to know!

Our Team

At Theatretrain King’s Lynn you will experience professional classes and professional performances and work with a great team!!
All our Teachers and staff are DBS checked and are either working in the industry or a qualified teacher.
