Open Class Presentation
Once a year parents are invited into class to watch an open class presentation to see how their child is developing at Sharpe Academy. This is a great chance to meet the teachers, discuss progress and watch a variety of lessons.
Once a year our students perform a fully staged musical at the 500-seat Watersmeet Theatre in Rickmansworth. This is always a highlight of the year and we try to make our shows as professional as possible including lights, microphones, set and costumes.
