Julia Gabriel, our founder,

created the original format of our programmes over 30 years ago, in addition to establishing a unique methodology for delivering them – EduDrama®. Today, our curriculum development team comprises experienced educators and early childhood specialists who work closely with our teaching teams. Together, they ensure each lesson is relevant, engaging and current, and succeeds in delivering the benefits of an EduDrama education to every child. This curriculum development process involves input and feedback from students, parents, the Ministry of Education and Trinity College London assessors.
