South-Side Speech & Drama Studio has been providing high quality performing arts education for over 18 years. We cater for children at all levels – from introductory for beginners and graded examinations to three levels of professional diplomas in performing and teaching.

Experienced and qualified staff work at South-Side Speech and Drama Studio. They are highly qualified in teaching and performing and have years of experience of working with children and preparing them for examinations. We are insured and CRB checked. Find out more about our staff here.

For two hours each Saturday your children will learn to express themselves and to build their confidence and self awareness. At South-Side we provide an environment for your children to stretch themselves, make new friends, learn new skills and work towards examinations three times a year. Please take the time to read this letter sent to us by one of our ex-pupils and a feature on us in the Manchester Evening News.

We also have a new testimonials page. Please have a look at some of our success stories.

The aim of South-Side is to offer children of all backgrounds the opportunity to share experiences, develop their confidence and to enjoy and train in speech and drama.

Sinclair Family Law Solicitors in Wilmslow shares our vision to ensure children from all backgrounds have an opportunity to study at South-Side. Sandra Sinclair kindly pays for a full term and/or an exam fee for one parent facing any financial difficulties.

The classes concentrate on improvisation and scripted work, poetry and prose, and sight reading.

Other benefits include:

  • Increased confidence and self esteem

  • Self-discipline

  • Listening skills

  • Oral communication

  • People skills

  • Negotiation skills

  • Ability to work individually and as a part of a team

We also train our pupils for graded examinations with the University of WEST LONDON in speech, drama, reading, presentation skills and communication.

Although the examinations are serious, students have a great time while they learn.

We are:

  • accreditation by Ofqual

  • approved by the Department for Education (DfE)


  • graded and diploma qualifications in drama and communication from the London College Of Music Examinations board

  • qualifications supported by the University Quality Assurance System (UCAS), and now qualifications taken with our studio give points on the UCAS tariff for university entrance.
