East Grinstead Academy
Ariel's Buddy System
The sessions will include 3 x 45 minutes lessons of Drama , Singing and Dance.
Each academy has a resident Principal who oversees the running and creative development of their academy, along with a team of tutors and support tutors who all have specialised experience in acting, dance and singing. Each academy also has administration staff who meet and greet students and support the teaching team.
Students are divided into groups to ensure that they do age-appropriate work which stretches and engages them. Selected students are also offered free LAMDA tuition as part of their academy experience.
It can be daunting when starting something new and because of this, Ariel operates a ‘Buddy’ system. When new students join, they will be appointed with a Buddy who can answers questions, guide them through the first lessons and provide a friendly face while they settle in.
The Buddy system is also extended for more experienced students who wish to gain volunteering experience and are willing to give up some of their own time to volunteer either with the Hamlets or our special needs students - the Othellos. This proves popular with older students who are working for their Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
