What our community members are saying:

"My daughter started learning at Royal Academy last year. She was shy and had no confidence but now she is not shy anymore and she has much more confidence all because of Hardeep Singh Sahota.”

"My kids joined the Royal Academy of Punjab in 2014 and their progress has left me astonished. It’s only been 3 years and one of them is already in a competition team… This academy really knows how to keep that cultural passion alive in our kids. Thank You."
