PILOT FRANCHISE PROGRAMME

WHAM Theatre Schools was setup after Head Principal Mark had worked for various Theatre Schools, and had been a Franchisee for a very successful, and known Weekend Theatre School Brand. By franchising a Theatre School Business Model, this allows passionate & creative professionals to grow a school with full support, whilst being able to focus on creating fantastic opportunities for children who attend your Performing Arts Classes. Mark says:

"There are lots of successful leading schools about, and the hecticness of my previous experience was why I decided to move on. I then had the buzz to create something else, which was practical, affordable, and based on what worked and didn't from my previous experiences".

We are offering Creative Professionals the chance to set up a recreational performing arts school under our Pilot Franchise Scheme. We have two Franchisees on board, and would be interested to hear from you if you would like to run a WHAM Theatre School in the areas below
