Jigsaw Performing Arts


Jigsaw schools run weekend classes – dance, singing and drama – for students aged 3 to 18, as well as themed holiday workshops and bespoke birthday parties.

With franchise opportunities available in new areas, you too can enjoy the rewards of running your very own performing arts school!

Jigsaw was founded in 1995. In the years since, we’ve developed tried and tested marketing and administrative systems that ease the daily running of the business. This means you can focus on delivering excellent classes and customer service.

As your own boss, you can fit your business around your existing life, with the potential to turn it into a very financially rewarding full time job, if you wish.

You’ll be investing in your future and the future of the children who attend your school, teaching them skills for life. And it’s also lots of fun!

Location: Ealing, Greater London

Family: One daughter.

How often do you work?
Every day. The school itself runs once a week, with 11-week terms that sit within school terms.

How does the job fit around your family life?
As most of the admin can be completed remotely and in flexible time, I am able to do most of my work during the evening and on weekends. Calls to customers can be made around other commitments. Prioritising jobs to complete is essential.

How much time do you commit?
At least 2 hours a day.

Where do you carry out your work?
At home during the week and at the school premises on the weekend.

Do you need a car?
Not necessarily, but it can make life easier.

Do you get support/training?
Yes, the initial training is good and staff are always available if I have a question or a technical problem.

Would you recommend this opportunity to other mums?
I would recommend this opportunity because the work can be done remotely and your children can get involved in your school too!

Do you advertise?
Yes, via social media and distributing leaflets locally, also recruiting websites for finding teachers.

Are there any downsides to the role?
Having to juggle work-life balance can sometimes be tricky, as I am constantly thinking about ways to improve my practice and the day to day running of the business.
