I am Becky Robinson, Drama Teacher and Co-ordinator of the ‘Robinson Academy’.
I live in Eastbourne with my Husband and my two sons.
I have been a primary teacher at a local school since 2000 after qualifying with a PGCE at Roehampton University in 2000. I had previously received a 2.1 BA honours in Arts Therapies majoring in Drama at the University of Derby.
I have performed in many Plays, Musicals and Shakespeare productions over the last 25 years in the Eastbourne area, Derby and London.
As a child and a teenager I myself took LAMDA exams and found them a very positive learning experience.
Over the past 16 years I have entered my schools drama group into Music and Arts festivals in the speech and Drama categories with excellent results.
I love seeing initially very shy children and young adults grow and bloom in confidence during drama lessons and have the confidence ultimately to perform in front of an audience.
Trained at Redroofs Theatre School, Berkshire. Graduated from the 3 year full time Performing Arts course. Obtained British Actors’ Equity.
