Theatre Centre productions support National Curriculum requirements across a range of subjects – through live performances and the provision of comprehensive learning resources. We also offer CPD opportunities for drama teachers.
"Theatre Centre performed an electrifying piece of issue based theatre accessed by enthralled RS, Geography and drama students. The follow up workshop provided the perfect stimulus for a dramatic enquiry unit around the theme of refugees and asylum seekers."

"The children thoroughly enjoyed it. An electively mute child actually began speaking during one of the role-plays! She has been speaking ever since. The children produced some lovely writing and we would be very interested in doing further projects."

We support young people's learning and development through two strands of education work:
In Development: Once we've commissioned a playwright and the subject of a forthcoming production has been decided, we design projects that open up the topics and ideas of the play. The involvement of young people at this stage ensures the writer creates a piece of theatre that will enthral young audiences.
In Performance: We believe that bringing professional productions directly to schools is a powerful way of improving learning. Our performance packages offer ways for teachers to deepen their students' learning experience - through workshops, Q&A sessions and plans for supplementary lessons. We also offer CPD training for teachers.
