About Steps Ahead

Steps Ahead Arts in Education Limited is an organisation based in Southend dedicated to providing professionally delivered performing arts workshops into schools. Established in 1999 and under the direction of Laura Bowen-Davies we pride ourselves in delivering a high quality, professional service in which youngsters can explore a wide range of performing arts activities whilst closely linking with each school. It is important to us to build a close working partnership to achieve specific goals and school outcomes whilst ensuring each child is learning in a fun, safe and energetic environment. We have taken our workshops to over 10,000 children and continue to see record numbers of students participate in our programmes.

Steps Ahead and Hinguar Primary School

Steps Ahead has been working in partnership with Hinguar Primary School for the last 3 years. Working closely with Mrs Stevens and the teaching faculty at Hinguar we have developed a bespoke programme for the Hinguar Primary school. We are offering a range of lessons to capture children's imagination, improve social skills, and inspire children to be the best that they can be through the medium of the Performing Arts. It is our belief that all children regardless of age, ability and background can benefit in participating in activities of this nature - and at the heart of what we do is the belief that some of these skills can be transferred to the classroom, to the rest of their education and beyond...

We have witnessed some truly inspirational individual student journeys over the last three years and parents and teachers have also commented on the positive impact that the arts has had within the school. We have also seen a marked improvement in the number of children expressing an interest to participate in dance, drama and singing activities with flare and enthusiasm.

Steps Ahead Student of the Week-Each week Steps Ahead recommends one student to be awarded the Steps Ahead Student of the Week Cup at Friday's School Assembly. The award is presented for a number of reasons ranging from perfecting a new skill to being an excellent role model.
