2021 has got off to a rocky start and our children have missed out on a lot of precious time creating memories, exploring their hobbies and talents, building friendships, and developing important life skills such as confidence, communication, creativity and teamwork.

This year we are back with our sell-out ACTAcademy Creative Summer School in July and August 2021 to help children make new memories with like-minded friends and nurture key skills in their development to ease the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our Creative Summer School will allow your children to enjoy fun activities with their friends again and to nurture the skills that they have been unable to exercise during their time stuck at home, all within the safe walls of our fully Ofsted-registered stage school building and private studios in Harrogate.

Class sizes will be kept to a minimum, following the government's educational and health & safety standards, with a qualified, CRB-checked, dedicated expert teacher leading each group throughout the week. With staggered drop-off and collection times, our own exclusive private studios and an onsite housekeeper to ensure that every surface is carefully cleaned throughout the day, your child will be in safe hands.

So, what can your child expect from our ACTAcademy Creative Summer School?

Children can look forward to a week of fun, creativity and education where no day is the same! Our passionate teachers will lead your children on an adventure of discovery, development and joy over the course of the week with the performing and creative arts at the core of our training. However, that does not mean that your little one has to be a performer to join in. Our Creative Summer School is suitable for any child; there is no performance pressure at all!

Every week's activities will be different, but some of the things that your child can look forward to include arts and crafts, singing, dancing, drama games, sports skills, slime-making and even yoga and gymnastics! No day is the same at ACTAcademy Stage School, so rest assured if you book on for multiple weeks your child will not do the same thing twice!

This year, each week of Creative Summer School is themed and our activities will be adapted to fit the theme of the week. Scroll further down to see what each week's theme is...

All activities throughout the week are cleverly designed to boost confidence, develop creativity and imagination, with special visits from famous storybook and movie characters to lead summer camp students on fun-filled drama adventures!

At ACTAcademy, we firmly believe that every child is unique and every child has unlimited potential. We encourage all children to be whoever and whatever they want to be. We aim to bring the most out of your child in a friendly, fun and supportive environment, with qualified and experienced teachers who love what they do!

You do not need to be an ACTAcademy student to attend our Summer Schools. ACTAcademy Creative Summer School is recommended to children currently at Primary School.

Our stunning private studios are fully equipped with props and equipment to strike up sparks of creative thinking in your child's mind! Year after year we have children whose highlight of the summer is coming back for our Creative Summer School and now this year you have even more opportunities to join us!

Themed weeks for ACTAcademy Creative Summer School 2021 are as follows:


26 - 30 JULY

Ahoy there! If you are a cheeky chappy with an adventurous spirit who loves to play pranks and cause mischief, then you will LOVE our Pirates, Pranks & Planks Week! A whole week designed to help you find your inner courage, develop your confidence and have oodles of fun in the process! All aboard the Pirate ship!


2 - 6 AUGUST


Once upon a time there was a magical week of fun, laughter, creativity and sprinklings of magic everywhere... and it was at ACTAcademy! Whether you love the Disney classics or the Pixar animations, our Disney Magic Week will lead your child on a journey of discovery to find their own happily ever after through developing their belief in themselves, not by waiting for Prince Charming to come to the rescue!


9 - 13 AUGUST


What's your superpower? Is it kindness, compassion, being a supportive friend? Or perhaps you have a super awesome talent that makes the world even brighter! Whatever your child's superpowers, strengths and talents are, we will be uncovering them and celebrating them in our Superheroes, Strengths & Talents Week! This is a perfect week for children whose confidence has taken a knock lately.


16 - 20 AUGUST


Everybody possesses a little magic, if you know how to find it. There is nothing more exciting than completing the impossible, and on Witches, Wizards & Magical Creatures Week we will be discovering and uncovering all of the magic there is to be found in the world, using our own skills and 'magical powers' along the way.


ACTAcademy Summer School is suitable for all children currently at Primary School.
