DPA Academy of Dance & Performing Arts are very proud to be OFSTED Registered.

OFSTED is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages; carrying out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England.

This subsequently means that you have reassurance that DPA will be regularly monitored and checked to ensure we as a school are providing your child with the appropriate training and learning environment of a certain standard.

As a Performing Arts school, this is an achievement we are certainly very proud of and we are one of very few in Norfolk & Suffolk who has achieved Ofsted registration.

In turn, this also provides a wonderful benefit for you as we accept Childcare Vouchers from a host of providers, which can be used to pay for school fees, including Care-4, Edenred, Sodexo and Kiddi Vouchers, Busybees Benefits and many more.

We can also provide written evidence for anyone that receives Universal Credit.

Praise For DPA

My 2 children have been attending DPA for a year. They have been welcomed into this nurturing environment like family. They have grown in confidence and love the very many classes they attend. The staff are amazing, caring and encouraging. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Sophy E

What we both love about DPA is the support all students give each other and how they all celebrate individual or group successes regardless of their own involvement. She has made many friends and considers herself very much one of the DPA family.

DPA is amazing and my second family, we work through struggles and learn how to be better performers because of it.
