Stage school offers a warm welcome

REDROOFS is proud to be the leading performing arts school in the area offering the best training, the best teachers

REDROOFS is proud to be the leading performing arts school in the area offering the best training, the best teachers and a friendly approach for all. Redroofs has something for everyone — whether you take part in inspiring weekly evening or Saturday classes for a hobby or wish to train for a career in the performing arts.

Established in 1947, the school has a full-time co-ed day school for years five to 13, a thriving part-time department, two fully equipped theatres and a busy and successful agency.

Redroofs full-time day school provides first-class training in musical theatre, dance and acting together with a solid academic education.

Pupils thrive in Redroofs’ supportive and friendly atmosphere and each pupil’s potential is nurtured with encouragement and expertise in ability-streamed vocational classes and small academic year groups.

Upper school pupils opt to specialise in acting and media or dance and there is extensive musical theatre training for all. Most pupils sit eight or nine GCSEs with good results and their dance grades are among the highest in the UK.

Redroofs’ BTEC sixth form combines cutting-edge training from leading theatre professionals with a level 3 BTEC in musical theatre performing arts and a DDI/ ISTD dance teacher’s qualification. The aspiring performers are equipped with the qualifications necessary for dance/drama college or university entry at 18 or to embark on a career in performing or related careers.

Redroofs part-time department runs from two buildings in central Maidenhead. Pupils enjoy state-of-the-art studios with sprung floors and floor-to-ceiling mirrors.

The studio walls are covered with inspirational pictures of past and current pupils now performing on the West End stage or big screen.

Their 160-seat theatre provides performance space for the many school shows and Saturday onstage Novello theatre school, while at the Littlewick venue children enjoy term-time and holiday courses.

Redroofs also has its own agency. Over the past year professional credits through the agency include West End productions of Matilda, The Sound Of Music, Shrek and Oliver!, regular TV soaps and series including EastEnders and feature films. The agency offers representation for all Redroofs pupils with the chance to appear on TV in films and commercials.
