School Of The Arts (SOTA) was established in 2005 to deliver high quality, all round performance training for the children and young people of Berkshire. Performing arts is a valuable way for young people to explore their creativity, build confidence and develop skills – and for some it is also their future career choice.
SOTA is committed to providing outstanding training taught by talented and qualified teachers and professionals with experience of working professionally in the entertainment industry and / or specialist knowledge and teaching qualifications in their field of expertise.
Whether performing is a hobby or an intended career; at SOTA your children can receive all round training in the performance arts – whether performing is their hobbie or career choice.
