WOAPA is a Children’s Theatre School based in Witney, offering classes at weekends in dance, singing and acting. Having opened its doors in Feb 2012 with a masterclass dance session by Kylie Minogue choreographer: Tim Noble, the theatre school filled its classes within 6 months 

WOAPA - Witney's popular Children's Theatre school is offering the following Scholarship places to attend their afternoon school for a whole year: 

  • 3 places for students currently attending Henry Box School years 9-11
  • 3 places for students currently attending Wood Green School years 9-11

Alongside providing the students with opportunities to gain skills in performing arts, WOAPA aims to improve the health and prospects of children throughout West Oxfordshire. 

“Raising children’s confidence and self-esteem is a big part of WOAPA” says Brian Conroy, principal.

“By offering scholarships we are hoping to give those children who, perhaps, wouldn’t usually be able to attend a drama school, the chance to benefit from all the positive aspects of the performing arts including increased physical fitness levels, a positive attitude and a sense of achievement.”

“We have some wonderful tutors, all hand-picked for their experience and enthusiasm. WOAPA’s aim is to provide quality tuition. We have a keen eye on providing good customer service and parents are regularly telling us they think we’re the best theatre school for children in the area”

At WOAPA, we take pride in going that extra mile for our students. We have arranged, and assisted our students to appear in local productions, professional stage shows (locally and on tour) and on television. We regularly invite top industry professionals to our school, to provide master-class sessions.

All applicants must attend an open session to be held on 
Saturday 5th November.

Written applications must arrive by Saturday November 19th 2016.
