TP Academy

Inspiring Creativity and Ambition

Theatre Peckham provides the best in performing arts training, striving to cultivate and instil in children a passion for the performing arts through self-exploration, teamwork, creativity, and play, providing a talent pipeline into the creative industries. 

Our timetable of 21 classes per week for ages 3-16 encompasses Acro, Acting, Afro-fusion Dance, Ballet, Music Production, Musical Theatre, Singing, Street dance, Tap dance, Technical Backstage Academy and Young & Talented Creators. 

Lots of children experience their first engagement with the arts with us at Theatre Peckham. Our commitment to long term activity means that  children can participate in classes all the way through to the age of 25 in our Young Peckham Programme. 

Learning and theatre making have an equal priority in everything we do. Every member has the opportunity for live performance on our stage. Casts of young people are brought together to perform alongside seasoned professionals in our annual Christmas productions that draw family audiences, schools and theatre goers who travel from afar to experience the authentic joy that resonates from our stage.    

Theatre Peckham is a charity, we are here for our community and are passionate about making a real difference. We lead based on our A.C.C.E.S.S  principles –

Achieve ~ ChampionChallenge ~ Engage ~ Social ~ Success
