We can offer one bursary place on each of our summer camps to individuals who show a passion and flare for the performing arts. A bursary place will be given to one child aged between 5 and 9 and one child who is 10 years or over. The awards will be given to individuals who’s families may be financially restricted and would otherwise not be able to attend our summer camps. Please complete an on-line application form stating BURSARY to apply for these places. All applications must be accompanied by one referee who can offer some insight into the applicants performing/musical background(e.g.,school head teacher).

The Easter camp will now be ONE combined class beginning at 10am – 2pm – all ages will be combined.
We are currently half way through our New Year term time block and our class is almost at capacity. We have huge talent and such enthusiasm from a great bunch of students and they are all building towards a final showcase for parents and families at the end of March.
Following on from that we will be running our 4 day Easter Camp on the 4th-7th April. Check our poster for all the details! We have early bird prices for this so get booking! Spaces are limited!
We rounded off our 6 week xmas block with a mini show to perform to parents! What a talented bunch of children we have! They had to perform from memory a host of dialogue, a full jive dance routine and 5 songs! They combined all the elements of musical theatre in one small show and did themselves proud! We even had a little sign language on the go! To all our superstars at Northern Star Academy – Merry Christmas to you! We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
Our 6 week term-time block saw a whole host of new talent come along and do their thing! We performed pieces from Hairspray, The Wiz, Sweet Charity and The Muppets! Such a great bunch and we are very proud of every single one of them. We were also inspired by the support from family and friends and would like to thank all of you for your attendance and encouragement at the performance! We will have more classes soon and a christmas spectacular on the way!
Well! What an amazing summer we had with our fantastic summer schools that saw a huge amount of talent come along and take part in intensive summer camps that involved singing, dancing and acting. We were proud to offer our first bursary place to a very talented individual and were overwhelmed by your support and words of encouragement! We would like to say a HUGE thank you to our volunteers for your commitment and dedication and a special thanks to Racquet Buddies for your generous contribution! Also, our Events Co-ordinator Emma for being such a huge asset to the Northern Star team – we thank you!
