All our staff have full DBS checks and are qualified to at least degree standard and most have been professionally trained at drama school. We also have qualified first aid staff onsite at all times, so whilst at our summer schools in Prestwich, you can be assured your child is in a safe environment.

In the summer holidays we are based at Our Lady of Grace Church Halls, off Fairfax Road, (Behind M & S), we have been established at this venue for 9 years. Why not let your child come and join us for summer camp fun, we aim to bring you peace of mind whilst your child is engaged all day long in drama, dance and singing in the heart of Prestwich.

The cost is just £99 per week from 9.30am – 4.30pm or for a £10 supplement per week you can choose wrap around care from 8.30am – 5.30pm.

There is also a discount for siblings of 25% per week (excluding wrap around care).

You don’t have to be a Footlights’ member to enjoy holiday school – everyone is welcome to join us in a fun, safe environment. Each day your child takes part in lots of fun performing arts activities, culminating in a performance on Fridays to which YOU are invited. All our staff are fully trained, are DBS registered and are educated to a minimum of degree level. We recommend you pack a healthy lunch with snacks and water. Our classes are energetic and your child will need to keep nourished and hydrated throughout the day.There is a show each Friday at 4pm (you will be notified of this with plenty of notice) if you have a holiday booked we will work the time of the show around everyone’s plans so don’t worry! You can bring friends and family to celebrate your child’s progress.
