The Camberley academy was our very first academy; established 2010.

This academy is the leading option for young actor training in the Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire area.

Please enquire about ages and appropriate groups. Division of groups by age is not an exact science at HAYA and is based on the individual needs and the demographic demands at the time.

You will be taught the craft of acting

  • Voice and Speech
  • Movement
  • Acting for screen / Naturalism
  • Theatre performance skills
  • Stage Combat
  • Devising and Theatre Making
  • Accent and Dialect
  • Improvisation
  • Character development

Each year our young actors are given the opportunity to show off their acquired skills in an actors showcase / performance - traditionally this is performed at The Farnham Maltings theatre in the Summer Term.

Every actor at HAYA is offered a place on our agency books. This is purely optional and does not affect or impact upon the training and enjoyment of the workshops should you decide not to join.

Actors who join the agency will be seen regularly for professional work in Film, TV, commercials and theatre through castings and auditions with some of the industry’s leading casting directors.


“HAYA is a brilliant experience for young actors. I’ve been at HAYA for 6 years and throughout my journey here I have grown as an actor and as a person. I’ve cultivated long lasting meaningful friendships with a community of young actors who have helped me through hard times. As a company we often create amazing performances that showcase our talents as well as stretch our abilities” Max Bradley-Cole - 17

“Throughout my years at HAYA I have found strong friendships and support I never thought would come from acting. The training HAYA has provided has not only developed my love for the art, but also given me skills to take into everyday life. I cannot recommend the hAYA family enough” - Carys Burrows - 18

“I have seen my daughter develop as an actor, grow in confidence and find her feet in a difficult industry because of the teaching support and dedication she has found at HAYA”
