Here are some testimonials from our current Grove Academy students:

“I enjoy the Grove because all the teachers are really kind and the best thing about the dance is that we learn new things without pressure and the same goes for singing and dancing. All of the teachers are the best. I think the Grove is really enjoyable. Even though I’m away from my parents I enjoy myself” – Reece age 9

“Throughout my 6 years at Grove I’ve made and developed so many incredible friends and skills. I truly cannot imagine life without it, and I am so grateful” –  Daisy age 13

“Grove Academy helped me with my acting, singing and dancing, and this is a lovely and exciting place to be. So you can do anything” – Jordan age 14

“Grove Academy have helped me with all aspects of the performing arts. They’ve helped me most with singing and giving me lots of confidence. I probably wouldn’t be in the National Youth Choir if it wasn’t for Grove.” – Samuel age 12
