Kidz on the Hill was founded in 2008 by Lou Turner. After 9 years of building
a wonderful school with a truly unique family feel, Lou handed over the reins
to professional actress Rosie Ward.
In September 2016, the students took a vote to choose our new name, and
the winner was Muswell Hill School of Performing Arts.
Rosie trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and worked at Kidz on
the Hill for 2 years as the drama teacher, before taking over as Principal.
She has taught drama from young people aged 3 - 18 years old and is
passionate about developing confidence and general life skills through performing arts. She still teaches the drama at MHSPA and writes the scripts for the annual productions.
As an actress, she has worked on a range of projects, from Shakespeare to musicals to children's theatre. She is also a professional singer in a 1960's Soul Trio (!) and runs UpFront Theatre Company, which runs interative PSHE workshops in secondary schools.
Actor Mackenzie Crook is an active Muswell Hill School of Performing Arts Patron, coming in to offer the kids acting advice and insight... he even played Fagin in our production of Oliver!
