School !
Glossop & Altrincham

Its with great sadness that High Peak Performance Glossop & Altrincham will close their doors for the final time from 01 January 2016 onwards. This is due to a relocation for the school to West London. Thanks so much to all the pupils and parents who have supported us over the last 5 years, we have had a blast...

We aim to set up at school in Putney & Chiswick, South West London soon.

It's not all bad news as Mr Adam Zane, TV Actor and Director is continuing with the Drama School under a new exciting name:

& FUN!


We believe that every child has
potential and not just the ‘stars’ or favourites of a group.

We take a popular West End show.
We simplify the script, choose 4 of the best songs.
We cast the show so that
EVERYBODY is included.
We delight in coaching our more
under confident pupils.
We only use WEST END and TV actors to teach your children.

Parents Testimonials

“What a difference High Peak Performance has made to William.  High Peak Performance has really increased his confidence on every level.  High Peak Performance really is the highlight of his week, which really is a testament to your very hard work .... You really should be incredibly proud of what a difference you are making to so many children this will be an experience that will be with them forever.  We are so grateful to you it is great to see William doing something he really enjoys. Thank you “



“My daughter Millie aged 7 started going to High Peak Performance about 8 months ago and hasn’t looked back. She started going as she was always keen to perform but lacked confidence to perform in front of other people.
John and Sam are true professional actors and have had a huge impact on Millie; helping her develop confidence in singing acting and dancing. She looks forward to Saturday mornings and would not miss a week!
By attending High Peak Performance she has improved her confidence at school, with teachers and friends; I would recommend the school to any parent”



What a fantastic group… Marnie, aged 13 years has attended many different performing arts groups, so we feel that we can compare...... John and Sam have such qualities and skills which enable them to work with the childrens own qualities, producing a relaxed but stimulating and ordered environment for them to enjoy singing, dancing and drama. 

Marnie looks forward to each week, continuing the singing and dancing through out the week in her bedroom.  The additional guest teachers that are invited into classes only enhance the childrens excitement and interest in the different elements of performing arts. 

It’s also great as a parent to have the opportunity to speak to the teachers informally and at the end of the classes and to watch the group work together on their latest work.  Additionally there are no extra costs.

Keep up the brilliant work everyone and thank-you for inspiring Marnie.  



We tried a few of the more well known drama schools around the area but nothing compared to the warmth and fun of High Peak Performance - we wish we’d found them sooner!! Now my daughter gets up on a Saturday morning and says “ yes…it’s Saturday…it’s drama” You have to be doing something right to get that response from a 10 year old! Thanks!”
