The Barbara Speake Agency
The Agency was established in 1961 by Mrs June Collins, and is now under the direction of Mrs June Billham.
The Agency becomes a pupil's sole representative while he or she is at the school.
Liaison between the academic and artistic staff and the Agency enables constant assessment of potential so that individual talents can be encouraged and utilised.
All pupils will be professionally photographed as and when necessary. They will also be entered into ’Spotlight’, the entertainment industry’s casting directory sent to all casting directors and companies. Pupils are required to have medical examinations each term for the purposes of obtaining a licence to work professionally.
Currently fees for the above are £250 per year and are included in the school fees
A 20% commission is charged on all professional work and all pupils are chaperoned on such work by experienced chaperones
We provide children from 3½ - 16 years of age for Film, Television, Theatre, Voice Over, Modelling and Promotional engagements.
We also supply supporting artists and deal with all licensing, schooling and Local Authority issues and use only licensed Chaperones with full CRB/DBS (enhanced disclosures) checks.
We are able to advise casting directors in regard to the regulations surrounding child performers.
