Our Classes.

In our secondary classes, students develop expressive and masterful use of voice and speech. Students are placed in small groups with similar aged peers. Group sized vary from 4-6 students depending on age, ability and the programme each student is working towards.  Lessons are 45 - 60 minutes in duration and occur on a weekly basis over the school term. Secondary classes are for Yr 9 - Yr 13 students. Individual lessons are available by request. Talk to one of our teachers about the benefits of a one-on-one lesson for your child.


Students will be encouraged to participate in Speech NZ and Trinity College of London speech examinations. Exams are optional, but highly recommended. They provide a goal for each child to work toward and give students a national measure of their achievement. The reputable Speech New Zealand and Trinity examinations look great on CV's too.
