The Brockley academy offers actor training for ages 5 - 18 over 5 different classes on 2 separate nights at Telegraph Hill Centre in South East London.

This academy has students from Peckham, Lewisham, Clapham, Greenwich and the City of London.

Please enquire about ages and appropriate groups. Division of groups by age is not an exact science at HAYA and is based on the individual needs and the demographic demands at the time.

You will be taught the craft of acting.

  • Voice and Speech
  • Movement
  • Classical Performance
  • Acting for screen / Naturalism
  • Theatre performance skills
  • Stage Combat

  • Accent & Dialect

  • Character Developmenmt

Each year our young actors are given the opportunity to show off their acquired skills in an actors showcase.

Every actor at HAYA is offered a place on our agency books. This is purely optional and does not affect or impact upon the training and enjoyment of the workshops should you decide not to join.

Actors who join the agency will be seen regularly for professional work in Film, TV, commercials and theatre through castings and auditions with some of the industry’s leading casting directors.

Sarah and her staff are the smartest and most knowledgeable acting teachers and mentors I have met. Their coaching and teaching come from a wealth of professional experience. I’ve been attending HAYA since 2019 and ever since my acting confidence and social skills have grown an unbelievable amount. Working with Sarah is honestly the best as she creates a safe environment for us actors to work in so we can produce the best work we can for ourselves. I’d highly recommend HAYA to any aspiring actors out there.
