In 2009 Margaret Saint opened her own branch of the 'Paul Nicholas School of Acting' franchise, but after a couple of years felt that the franchise format was holding back what the school could be and so NAPA was created. It was a huge and potentially scary step to set up an entirely independent school, but definitely worth the risk. It has allowed us to expand the school and offer so much more to our students. Our aim is to provide children and adults the opportunity to learn, get valuable stage experience and gain confidence in themselves whilst having fun and making new friends. At NAPA we offer a range of classes to suit every individual and perform productions throughout the year, more information of which can be found on our classes page. We do our best to listen to our students and parents with regards to any improvements we can make to give everyone the best experience we can, which we have found has created a school we can be very proud of and a place so many of our students love to come to each week.
