Meet The Team
West London Performing Arts Academy Charity provides an enriched, inclusive learning environment, that helps students of all ages overcome their shyness whilst working on confidence building and self-esteem.
We offer performing arts classes every Saturday during term time from our Gunnersbury Park Museum venue and education sessions during the week for children and young people that are home schooled from our Northfields Centre.
Founded in 2012, we have recently re-located to our new home in Northfields, Ealing, an area rich in diverse backgrounds and cultures.
We pride ourselves on going the extra mile, giving our students a voice and enabling them to feel an integral part of the community, ready to learn, create and grow together.
We are passionate about breaking down barriers and creating an inclusive environment for all. Every student needs to feel special and have a place in today's society.
We never want to turn anyone away. As a result we offer scholarships and bursaries to as many families and young people as we can, whilst at the same time ensuring fees are kept as low as possible to make classes accessible to all. Despite this, we are still aware that many students and families are still unable to access our classes for financial reasons. With your help we can offer our services to more people.
All staff are subject to enhanced DBS checks and the 3 founders have had child protection training. Michelle and Shanti are experienced Designated Safeguarding Leads having undergone local authority training.
