Meet Our Instructor

Courtney Ward
Professional actress and has performed on stage, screen and behind the scenes all across the world. Teaching alongside auditioning over the last six years is something which Courtney finds hugely rewarding, and she has always tried to filter in life skills throughout her other subjects (performing arts and Pilates!), as she believes that important life skills can always be taken away from any subject, and that education should be a fun and passion driven experience which inspires us to constantly be curious and growing as people, no matter our age.

Courtney is still a keen learner herself, and is fascinated by history, science and medicine. (So much so, that she retook her first aid course two years earlier than she needed to – for fun!) She loves feeling like she can take a lesson away from anyone and anything, and hopes she can share that enthusiasm!

In 2020, Courtney launched an online theatre organisation which helps professional performers and writers like herself feel as though they are supported and encouraged to thrive as part of an inclusive community where their individuality is valued and celebrated – these values are massively important to her and are ones which she continues to encourage in her classroom. Courtney is also the safeguarding leader for this company and regularly ensures that everyone is constantly feeling seen and heard, and reassured that their voices matter.

Courtney wants every child that she works with to leave her class feeling empowered and valued, and she’s extremely excited to welcome old and new faces into her classroom with her trusty cup of tea and endless supply of notebooks!
