Lou Cox

Teacher Picture

Lou is the drama specialist at Springmead Prep school in Beckington and teaches drama for Stagecoach. She graduated with a BA Hons in Performing Arts from Bath Spa University and has since worked professionally as an actress, comedian and singer.

Lou has been teaching drama for 10 years working one to one with LAMDA students as well as groups of all ages focusing on many styles of theatre. She is particularly passionate about devising drama.

Freddie & Lou are DBS checked, School First Aid Trained, Child Protection Trained & have access to ongoing training.

As a shy and awkward 13 year old I lacked confidence in myself and in my acting ability, but taking LAMDA classes with Freddie completely turned that around; I am now a confident, expressive and informed performer.

Lewis, 18

My son says he feels completely alive when he is onstage. The techniques and knowledge that Lou has taught him have given him the skill set to explore his passion with growing confidence. He has found someone that totally understands that learning is fun; laughter and joy are hallmarks of the lessons.

Mrs Taylor

Freddie is a wonderful teacher. She shows great empathy, as well as enormous passion and energy for drama. Her drama lessons are great fun as well as challenging. This combination results in my daughter loving both her lessons and drama!

Mrs Botterill

An inspirational and caring teacher. Lou works so hard with our daughter to enable her to be the very best she can. This is borne out not only by the excellent LAMDA results but also by increased confidence that feeds into other areas and subjects at school.
