As the principal of Stage Academy Highgate it is my job to put together an incredible team of inspiring industry professional teachers. I am proud to introduce to you all the amazing team we have secured to work with us in Highgate at Highgate Primary School and Lauderdale House from January 2020. They will be working tirelessly to deliver Act, Sing, Dance and Succeed sessions to our 6-18s students and to ignite the imaginations of our 4-6s with our specially written education resources. Our teachers are multi-talented and work with all students across the academy teaching a variety of subjects. Read on to find out more about our brilliant team, then book your free trial for January to see for yourself how they encourage self-confidence, teamwork, ambition, responsibility and success in our students, both on-stage and off.

Kieran Parrott – Performing Arts Teacher

Kieran was born and raised in London and has worked as a Performing Arts teacher for six years. After returning from four years of training at the renowned Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, he decided to pass on his skills to the future generation. With a drive to become the teacher that he had himself as a child, Kieran’s main motivation has been to get the best out of the children he teaches, helping them to gain confidence in not just the performing world but in life as a whole. It also fills him with pride to see that a number of his past students have gone on to train at some of the UK’s leading drama schools. Alongside his teaching career, Kieran performs professionally. He stars as Franki Valli for the Jersey Guys, one of the UK’s leading Jersey Boys tribute acts and is playing Muddles in the Snow White pantomime this festive season in Welwyn Garden City.
