Drumba have visited us 3 years on the trot now for our “Sports Week” event, which takes place each July. Drumba are reliable and experienced. Each year their vibrant, well managed team visit us, they deliver a great understanding and familiarity of our busy school environment. Drumba offer a quality activity, that is flexible. The instructors adapt quickly and easily to the different dynamics of our classes, combining excellent behaviour management. Our children with SEND needs were also completely engaged and got a lot out of the 30 minute sessions. A Drumba session involves the whole body, the beating / hitting of the drums releases frustration and the music in the routines excites our children.

The coaches were amazing and combined good behaviour management with having fun”

Nicki Biggs – School Games Organiser – Sutton Road School Mansfield


“Professional. High Quality. Unique. Drumba has delivered on every level since the very first introduction and assembly. The children and staff at St Edmund Campion have been captivated and enthused by the skill, high energy and fast paced sessions. The co-ordination and concentration involved alongside the physical aspect provides the perfect challenging workout that hits every goal of the Government’s sports premium goals.

The feedback has been excellent from the children and parents highlighting clear progression, confidence and enjoyment. This has particularly been key for those children previous not engaged in sport and physical activity. There has also been a measured improvement during class.

The sessions have been fully booked and the consistent standard of teachers has been excellent which is testament to the quality and professionalism of Drumba. Not only has Drumba enriched our after school provision, but as part of our health weeks – with all children active and engaged from FS to Y6.

We have been extremely lucky launch school sessions for the teachers, which we can highly recommend. A perfect way to be active, strengthen bonding, aid well-being and be really physical – tailored to everyone’s needs. We can’t wait for mix tape 10! Thank you Drumba!”

“Firstly I want to thank you for the brilliant workshop you delivered a couple of weeks ago, all of the children and staff were buzzing AND are very exciting about the planned lessons in April.”

Marie Waring  – Scalford School Leicestershire


“Drumba was absolutely fantastic! The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the hour’s session – fun, lively and engaging for both boys and girls, all ages and abilities. Drumba is a great idea, co-ordinating drumming and fitness to pop songs! The instructors were excellent too – so full of energy and great at getting everyone involved. Fantastic day was had by everyone and something I definitely recommend for everyone to get involved with and do!”

Rachel Wright – The West Bridgford School Nottinghamshire


“We invited Drumba to come to our school having been introduced to the concept in a taster session at a Rushcliffe Schools Sports Partnership meeting.

Having heard nothing but positive praise about it we were keen to experience it for ourselves so we booked in a 6 week block for 2 Key Stages covering the whole school. We were able to facilitate this by using some of our allocated PE & Sport Premium Grant.

From the start Adam and Tommy have been fantastic. From their professional set up and excellent time keeping through to the rapport with the children and their enthusiasm and energy the experience has been a totally positive one.

During the sessions every child, without exception, is engaged in a high energy, fast paced workout which combines aerobic movement with music and drumming skills. The level of the children’s abilities has progressed each week and the impact on their levels of fitness is evident as their stamina has increased. Not only that, but the children love it! One year 2 boy said, “It’s the best thing we do all week!” and he now brings in his own drumsticks.

I would thoroughly recommend Drumba to any school as a unique PE experience that keeps all of the children fit, engaged and having fun!”
