PURE DRAMA is an Award Winning Theatre School offering classes in Acting,  Musical Theatre, BERTIE AND BETSY and LAMDA examinations


A fun, friendly and affordable Drama School with classes in SOUTHBOURNE and CHRISTCHURCH. Pure Drama students have gone on to top London Drama schools, have won numerous awards and have a 100% pass rate in their LAMDA examinations

Pure Drama is an exciting and nurturing school where pupils are encouraged to be individuals, whilst being guided and taught how to Act, Sing and Dance by Industry Professionals. Our class sizes are small which means every child gets the individual care, focus and attention they need. We pride ourselves on this and believe this is why parents choose Pure Drama over other schools in the area.


Another reason that makes us stand out is the fact that our students have the opportunity to choose which discipline they'd prefer to study. So if it's Acting they love, we offer straight Acting classes (ACTORS) rather than having to participate in  all three disciplines; Acting, Singing and Dancing. Of course we have Musical Theatre classes (PERFORMERS) for those that do! For Students that would like to take Performance examinations or further their studies by auditioning for Drama Schools we offer private coaching in the form of our LAMDA lessons


Whilst we aim to produce bright, confident and skilled performers it's the emphasis on fun that's at the heart of our classes.  

We are the only school in the area to offer a 50% SIBLING DISCOUNT.


So if you have a budding performer destined for the stage or a shy child struggling to find their voice then look no further and book a

FREE TRIAL for one of our classes.
