Where every child is heard and every child is known

Pure Drama is an exciting and nurturing Theatre school where pupils are encouraged to be individuals, whilst being guided and taught how to Act, Sing and Dance by Industry Professionals.

With classes across Pokesdown, Southbourne and Christchurch in Acting and Musical Theatre for 0-19 year olds.,


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 rather than having to participate in  all three disciplines; Acting, Singing and Dancing. Of course we have Musical Theatre classes  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 and NEW ERA Diploma lessons.

A Pure Drama student currently holds the title of Southern Theatre Senior Champion 2023.

For our littlest performers we have our Music, Dancing, Sensory and Imaginative Play sessions for Babies, Toddlers and Pre Schoolers- Pure Drama with Bertie & Betsy

We are proud to  have our own Casting agency Pure Drama Management

Pure Drama offers free trials to all new faces. Do contact us to register your interest.

We cant wait to welcome you


Summer School

Thank you all for the most wonderful week. My Daughter has absolutely loved every minute, made some lovely new friends and gained so much confidence in a week! Seeing her perform made both myself and her Daddy feel very emotional and proud. She is already asking me "how many sleeps till drama starts?". To be able to inspire is truly a gift, pure drama you have that gift

Main School

My son loves going to Pure Drama and I have noticed how confident he has become! The small class sizes enable the teachers to really focus on the individual child and bring out the very best in them. The lessons are very reasonable price wise compared to other drama companies with a free taster session available. Lizzie and her team are friendly and vibrant and enable each child to participate fully. As an experienced, working actor Lizzie has the knowledge, background and competencies to produce fabulous shows which are a thrill to watch. I would highly recommend sending your child to Pure Drama!


Drama lessons for children are so important. Whether for a budding actor or simply to build confidence. Lizzie and her team at Pure Drama have boundless energy for the arts. Her drama classes are professional, personal and fun. We loved working alongside Lizzie and we guarantee that your child will too. We are proud to be patrons of Pure Drama
