Secondary Schools

We are enthusiastic about building partnerships with local schools to provide creative and effective learning opportunities both within and outside the curriculum.

Our Learning and Participation Department have developed a set of workshops to assist you in delivering drama at your school or as a way of using drama as a tool for engaging learning.

Our practitioners have a wealth of experience working to learning objectives in schools and educational environments, making theatre with young people and creating professional theatre for all types of audiences; it is these three areas that inform our work in schools. We also aim to build additional skills development in areas such as resilience or literacy into our projects – we want to give your students the best opportunities to assist them with their progress.

Our Education Programme offers:

  • Transparent benefits for your students and you as a teacher
  • Skills and understanding for progress and assessment
  • Skills for personal and social development and resilience
  • Development of creative thinking and imagination
  • A clear and simple pricing scheme

Our programme includes standard workshops and projects for both Primary and Secondary schools. Find out more about the range of workshops and projects we offer here.

If you would like to enquire about or discuss any of our workshops or projects, or enquire about a bespoke project for your school, please do not hesitate to contact our Education Officer and Youth Theatre Leader Josh Whatsize on
