Claire Hersey (redfern)


Head Teacher

"One of the proudest moments of my life was qualifying as a teacher of drama. It was a very tough road to get there, but I did it and I have never looked back. It is the best job in the world. It's even better now that I can do the best job in the world and be my own boss doing what I love. I am very fortunate to be in this position and commit everyday to helping my students become their own star". 

Dee Shepherd


Redstar Teacher

“May I first say, it is my total honour and privilege to be a part of the Redstars family. After watching my son's confidence and performance skills grow and seeing how much fun he was having with Claire, I knew I wanted to be involved too. 

Having an academic background in Acting, Drama & Performance,  Contemporary Theatre Practice and devising and delivering Theatre In Education sessions within Primary Schools, I knew that Redstars was the place for me. Not only is my first passion fulfilled here, but so is my second; working with children and inspiring the younger generation: Win/Win! 

I am so excited about this new term and can't wait to get stuck-in and make some fabulous fun time drama memories together!”

Kayleigh Herzog


Redstar Teacher

Kayleigh joined the team in September to work with our fantastic All Saints group. Since she has started, she has really bonded with the group and is helping them reach their acting potential and beyond. Kayleigh has received very positive feedback from the children and has a natural flare for making sure her students have the best lessons from her creative ideas. We at Redstars HQ are very happy to have Kayleigh join our team.
