What We Do
The Debbie Fyffe Theatre School is home to one big happy family of Dance, Drama and singing students.
Students are encouraged to express themselves and achieve everything they can. It is not always easy to feel comfortable around your school peers, but this is always much easier when you are surrounded by other students interested in the same activities.
