Shine On Stage - STROUD STAGE SCHOOL - Performing arts for young people

Stroud High School, Beards Lane, Stroud GL5 4HF, UK – 0845 519 6455

The team at shine are fantastic and my daughter loves going every week. She is so confident and is always singing at home! Shine offers a great mix of song, dance and acting and the end of term shows are fab!

My son first attended Shine on Stage Summer School as we thought it would help his confidence - he really enjoyed it and flourished! He then joined the Saturday Stage School and has gained confidence and great friends. We particularly like the fact that dance is included as other schools that we looked at don't include it. The teachers have experience of working in the 'business' and really encourage and nurture the children allowing them to have fun and take performing as far as they want to; my son has gained Distinctions in the LAMDA exams (all of the children who take them at the school do very well) with fantastic tutoring, had the chance to audition for Matilda and Billy Elliot as well as a BBC production and with support from Alice, the Principal, gained a place in the 2016 Company of The National Youth Theatre. The children also benefit from tutors who are appearing in the West End. Thank you Alice, Hayley, Stella and Lucy.

Primary Schools

Severn View Primary Academy

Bisley Old Rd, Stroud GL5 1NL, UK – 01453 766328

Severn view primary academy is a vibrant, colourful school full to the brim of exquisite teachers and wonderful children. It is run by a head teacher who not only has a huge amount of experience but also who cares deeply for the children, the Stroud community and her staff. The school, which was taken over by the new head teacher when the future longevity of the academy was in question, has come along in leaps and bounds! It's even on a good school guide! Severn view academy is a school that cherishes the child as an individual and their learning journey. Do not hesitate in sending your children to this school.

When I first became aware of Severn View Academy, it was in the bottom ten percent of all English Primary schools for its results, it is now in the top ten percent. What a change, all due to the continued support of a consistent, dedicated and knowledgeable staff who want the best education for all of the pupils. The children are lovely and enthusiastic to learn, not surprising given the wonderful opportunities they are given such as the Sow and Grow scheme, outdoor learning at its best and Fantastic Friday's, that allow them to try lots of different sporting, musical and art activities. I wish my children were young enough to go as I would have no hesitation in sending them. A visit to the school by prospective parents would confirm my views I am sure, go and see for yourself!

Curious Caterpillars Day Nursery

Downfield Lodge, Downfield Rd, Stroud GL5 4HL, UK – 01453 750957

Had one child in this nursery for over a year and in the beginning it was fantastic but for the odd minor niggle which you would get from anywhere. whilst looking around for our 2nd childs care it would seem there have been several changes for the new starters which are not so good and why we may chose elseware. Changes include - 1. Parent now has to provide fully made up bottles which just need re-heating. In the beginning we just had to provide the bottle and the rest was provided by the nursery. 2. Prices increase often even though the nursery provide less and less. 3. Staff changes are quite regular as many of the staff are only employed as trainees, they are replaced by fresh, cheaper staff at the end of their training period. 4. Originally nappies were provided by Tiggers but this was also stopped and the parents asked to provide them in advance. Overall the level of care is very good and most staff are fantastic. If only the cost and level of service provided were in better balance. There are many other very good nurery's which provide all your Childs daily requirements within the price you pay, that which is normally cheaper than Tiggers.


Stroud Cricket Pavilion,, Stratford Road, Stroud GL5 4EL, UK – 01453 767004

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, good childcare. Lots of fun, activities, play and interaction. There's a big play area at the front and a lovely garden at the back. My daughter loves it at Seasons!

Our 2 children have been going to Season's nursery from a young age. They are now almost 4 and almost 2. They thoroughly enjoy going to Seasons and have thrived there. There is a lovely balance of free play as well as learning. The staff are fantastic, very supportive, always listen and seem to really know and understand our children well. Bridget, the manager, is always happy to try and accommodate our needs wherever possible. We would definitely recommend this nursery to others because our children are so happy there. Thank you to all of the staff for their ongoing care and support towards our children.

Britannia Dance

2 Cashes Green Rd, Stroud GL5 4JG, UK – 07766 101790

I love Britannia Dance because it gives me a chance to practise a sport I really enjoy in my local area. It's convenient and a great place for meeting new people and making friends. It's also very rewarding - everyone is able to pass exams and gain a number of medallist awards, as well as getting the opportunity to showcase all new skills acquired to family members in the presentation classes. More confident dancers also get the opportunity to take part in dance competitions and earn yet more awards. I have found the whole experience very enriching as it has allowed me to expand social interactions with others beyond my family and school community, and because dance itself can be enjoyed both as a fun hobby and a challenging fitness regime. These classes are suitable for all ages and abilities - certain classes are aimed more at those hoping for a pleasant pastime, whilst others are more appropriate for people looking for a new talent, wishing for a chance to compete in a sport or simply as a way of keeping fit. I have been dancing at this school for nearly 8 years now, and it has become a major part of my life. If you want to have a good time, get fit and meet great new people, I would definitely recommend that you start inquiring about some of the classes on offer. It may just change your life!

We have been dancing for 3 years, all the time, trained by Sam and Martina. They have got us to Gold medal standard in ballroom! Throughout, they have been superb teachers...very understanding of how many left feet I have! Sam is a superb teacher and very talented. Martina taught us a lovely routine in the Argentine Tango, which we know other people often admire, when we do it on the dance floor. We consider ourselves very lucky to have 2 such talented teachers in the Stroud area. Thank you, Sam and Martina! Peter and Pamela Keevil
