Speech and Drama Lessons

Speech and Drama lessons provide a platform for creative, intellectual and social development of the individual as a whole. Students develop a range of skills for performance and communication. These include: fostering an appreciation of literature, poetry and drama; learning vocal and acting techniques; confidence building; working with the LAMDA syllabus towards examination and an opportunity to display work to parents in our annual showcase.

We offer 30 half-hour lessons per academic year which, due to the unequal length of the terms, are usually scheduled as follows:

Autumn Term – 12 lessons

Spring Term – 10 lessons

Summer Term – 8 lessons

There will be flexibility on term dates

The total annual charge to parents is divided into 3 equal instalments. This will appear as an advance payment on your termly account.

The cost for 2016-2017 is £618.00 per year for individual lesson, £345 per year for shared lesson.

Lessons are on a strict rotation basis and a timetable is produced and posted on the Music Department notice board. Sixth form pupils have lessons scheduled during study periods or before school and lunchtimes. Upper 5 students have lessons timetabled before school and lunchtimes. All other pupils will miss academic lessons on a rotational basis.

Pupils are expected to attend punctually and regularly. It is the senior pupil’s responsibility to check the timetable (and double-check on the morning of the lesson) and to attend the lesson on time. Any problem with regard to lessons times must be reported to Ms Tendler no later than the day before the lesson.

A period of half a terms’ notice is required if your daughter intends to give up lessons. Lessons may discontinue if the attendance and/or effort of pupil falls below an acceptable standard. Parents will be given adequate notice of this possibility.

 

LAMDA examinations have been accredited under the QCA and QCF. From Grade 6, examination in performance and communication re recognised with in the UCAS tariff.

Individual Music Lessons

We have a very vibrant music school here at Talbot Heath. In addition to the academic music lessons the girls have on their timetables, the music department also offers individual music lessons, tutored by our peripatetic music teachers. This is for girls in year 2 and above.

We offer 30 half-hour lessons per academic year which, due to the unequal length of the terms, are usually scheduled as follows:

Autumn Term – 12 lessons

Spring Term – 10 lessons

Summer Term – 8 lessons

There will be flexibility on term dates.

The total annual charge to parents is divided into 3 equal instalments. This will appear as an advance payment on your termly account.

The cost for 2016-2017 is £618.00 per year. The hire of an instrument is £127 per year.

 

Lessons missed through tutor absence will be made up by the tutor or, if this is not possible, the fees adjusted accordingly at the end of the year.

Refund will not be made for pupil absence, unless the pupil is absent due to an official school event and has informed the Head of Music of this in advance.

A period of 5 lessons’ notice is required if your daughter intends to give up lessons. The Head of Music may discontinue lessons if the attendance and/or effort of pupil falls below an acceptable standard. Parents will be given adequate notice of this possibility.

Lessons are arranged by the Head of Music on a strict rotation basis and a timetable is produced and posted on the Music Department notice board. Sixth form pupils have lessons scheduled during study periods or before school and lunchtimes. Upper 5 students have lessons timetabled before school and lunchtimes. All other pupils will miss academic lessons on a rotational basis.

Instrumental Tutors will provide a written report on progress twice a year.

It is the senior pupil’s responsibility to check the timetable (and double-check on the morning of the lesson) and to attend the lesson on time.

The dance classes provide a chance for all ages from kindergarten upwards to enjoy Ballet, Jazz and Tap with opportunities to take exams if desired. The ballet classes follow the RAD syllabus and the Tap and Jazz, the ISTD.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is very popular here at Talbot Heath and we have over 100 girls currently working on their Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

The Bronze award is offered to pupils in Upper 4 and participants complete volunteering, physical and skills activities throughout the year. During the summer term they undergo training and practice for a 2-day expedition, walking through the beautiful Dorset countryside and camping overnight.

The Silver award is offered to pupils in Lower 5 and their expedition will be over 3 days and includes wild camping in the New Forest and Dartmoor national park - an opportunity to really get away from it all! Girls can begin their Gold award as soon as they turn 16 years old.

At Gold level they have to complete an additional 'Residential' section and take much more responsibility for planning their Expeditions. Recent Gold expeditions have ventured to the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia - a very long drive in a minibus but worth it for the breathtaking scenery!

Gold awards are usually presented at St. James's palace and we are very proud of all of the pupil and former pupils who have recently achieved their awards. For further information about the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Talbot Heath School please contact Miss Harrison.
