"My daughter was one of the very first pupils when Starlight opened in Thames Ditton. She has learned so much and has participated in three highly professional Academy shows at the Epsom Playhouse, which have been a wonderful experience for all the performers. Clare is an inspirational teacher with a dedicated team. They enable all pupils to reach very high standards."
