The great news is that we are BACK this summer term face-to-face and working towards an amazing end of term celebration – BestFest. Additionally we can now confirm that our summer courses will run 26-30 July, 2-6 August and 9-13 August.
So we are back in full lockdown but fear not, for Best has it all under control.
For our musical theatres tudents (and anyone else who wants to join in aged 6 to 16) we have Maskerade – a 6 week online filmed project.
For our younger students aged 3 to 6 we have James and the Giant Peach
And for our Best Schol of SActing, Byete and feelgood Factor studnets it’s business as usual, just online!
Best, Best School of Acting, TheBYTE and First Class are BACK this week following our enforced lockdown break. Well done to all those who took part in our online classes – you made the lockdown fly past!
It has been an amazing term so far with our students showing just how adaptable and positive they are, coping effortlessly with all the new ways of doing things…
And we ended the half term with a brilliant Halloween Spooktacular where the costumes were creative and hugely entertaining, and the classes laced with weird spookiness too.
Here is the latest on COVID19 as it affects Best (13 November 2020)
With Lockdown2 in place we are moving back online for our classes for the next few weeks and we are thrilled with how ell the first classes have gone. We know it’s not ideal but it is a brilliant way for the children to stay in touch with friends, keep creative and stay happy.
Thanks to all who have sent us feedback on our various classes so far. Your support and encouragement has been amazing and we really feel we are on the right track. Running the brilliant Academy and various other courses over the past few weeks has given us a very good idea of what can be achieved in these classes and we are super confident that we will deliver a creative, interactive and FUN experience for all involved. Nothing pre-recorded, all live and interactive.
Thank you again for all your support – it has meant a huge amount to us and we hope that we are bringing some smiles, excitement and engagement into your lockdown!

Rock Song – lyrics
Everywhere you go, right across the World
From the snowy mountain tops to the underworld
You’re never ever more than a stone’s throw away from rock
You can feel it in your shoes, you can hold it in your hand
You can roll it while you’re rockin’ to the rhythm of the band
Coz everybody knows that the whole World’s built on rock
Rock! (rock) Rock! (rock) Rock! (rock) Rock!
We are shingle, we are gravel, we’re a boulder or a block
Yeah we like it, we like it
Coz rock is all over the World
Chill with the marble, grind up the stones
Feel the jingle of the shingle send a tingle through your bones
You can crack it you can hack it, but there’ll never be a lack of rock
Metamorphic, sedimentary, igneous it doesn’t really…
Matter coz the strata holds the rock in line together
And the valleys and the mountains show the underlying pattern of rock
And if you see a rock is rollin’
Then you’d better start a-strollin’
Coz it might roll over you
And we never have to worry even if we’re in a quarry
Coz we’re rockin’ the whole night through
Chorus with claps x 2
Chorus x 2
Repeat last line

It’s all down to our fantastic teachers, students and parents. Thank you all!
Congratulations to our advanced group for a fantastic performance at Trestle last Sunday. The most difficult kind of sketches for any actor delivered with skill and energy. Well done everyone!
