Over 20 years in the UK


The Academy was founded in a church hall in Perth, Australia in 1979.

In 2014 the Academy celebrated 20 years of operation in the UK.

A great amount of time has been spent developing a curriculum encompassing an extensive range of drama activities designed to capture the imagination of children of all ages.

Developing children's confidence and verbal communication skills!


The Bercow Review in August 2008 highlighted the requirement of the education system to focus on improving the language and communication skills of young students.

John Bercow MP said: “The ability to communicate is an essential life skill for all children and young people in the 21st century. It is at the core of all social interaction.  With strong communication skills, children can engage and thrive. Without them children will struggle to learn, achieve, make friends and interact with the world around them.”

The Helen O’Grady system is totally focussed on addressing these social and educational concerns. The curriculum taps into the natural interest children have in drama and helps them develop into confident, articulate young people, more able to succeed in later life.
