“All of my children have gone to Cat’s Academy. A place where they can learn to be creative and express themselves. Catherine’s brought them through many levels of the speech and drama programme. Our older boys who are now in secondary school  are required to do a lot of class based assessments and presentations. I think that the speech and drama that Catherine taught them has helped them to develop excellent stage presence, delivery of subject, eye contact and public speaking. “

“Catherine is a really gifted speech and drama teacher. She has a wonderful way with children and Tuesday at 4pm, drama time, is the highlight of my son Oisín’s week. He just loves the classes. Catherine prepares students so well for grade exams and really celebrates their achievements. It is wonderful to know my son’s creativity is being nurtured by such a talented teacher.”

“Catherine has such passion for what she does and it really shines through. Our children really look forward to class every week and her love of the subject and the children is just great to see”

“I really like it. Because I like drama and I love my drama teacher. I love the role plays and improv – they are my favourite parts.”

Cat's Academy Speech & Drama Classes, Dublin


Cat’s Academy of Speech and Drama grew from a belief that every young person should have the opportunity to learn through drama. As a child, I really looked forward to speech and drama classes and it was one of the highlights of my week and the benefits I gained from attending these classes I would like to share with young people today. I also know that many parents, who have also been lucky enough to have attended speech and drama classes, know that it is key to unlock an inner confidence that can help in all areas of life and therefore choose to send their own children to classes…
