The warm ups are great fun and I love writing my own scripts“.
Izzy (student)

Since starting at INKlings, he has really come out of himself and is much more confident. He loves it!

My daughter was buzzing afterwards and excitedly telling me all about the fun drama games.

I love the creative writing and that you get to act things out in front of an audience. If I were to rate it, I would give it 5 Stars!
Abbey (student)

It’s clear that the kids absolutely love it! It was utterly joyous to see their little faces light up with pride at the end of their moment to shine“.

She’s loving the INKlings sessions. Keep up the good work!”

INKlings Schools Programme

Launched in September 2017 and led by Emma Parsons, the INKlings School Programme is proving to be very successful. The clubs are well attended and the children are having great fun, and are already busy writing their own short scripts!

INKlings aims to celebrate children’s creativity and imagination, encourage creative writing skills, boost their confidence and support the development of life skills such as team work, communication, focus, discipline, respect, leadership and problem solving.

The programme explorers acting techniques, stage craft, improvisation and play writing through a series of fun filled drama games. Children will discover the magical processes of developing characters and storylines and bringing them to life.
