We offer a range of activities and support materials for schools and colleges:


This project, for Key Stages 1 & 2, delivers curriculum and social development through workshops in schools, attendance at productions at the theatre and their own performances staged at the Playhouse supported by professionals. Schools can choose from a menu of activities to suit their needs. One school said “OFSTED gave our English curriculum Outstanding – due to this project.”

Welcome to our programme of activities aimed at secondary schools for 2018/19 which covers a range of activities for Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 students studying both English and Performing Arts/Drama

Over the course of 2017/18 we worked with several secondary schools providing them with bespoke workshops to support classroom teaching and enrich the lives of young people. The list below is only an idea of what we have on offer; please let us know of any specific aspect of English, Drama or theatre production that you would like our support with.

KS3 Original Drama Competition Final
Last year we received scripts from over 50 young people who took part in our competition. Six were presented in The Salberg as rehearsed readings in July and from that three were selected. These will now be performed on Monday 25 February by FE drama students at Theatre Fest West 2019.

The competition itself will be back for September 2019.

Teresa Jones, an English/Drama teacher from Sarum Academy whose students took part in the 2016/17 competition said:  

The experience of working with professionals who took the writing seriously and allowed opportunity to adapt and experiment with the writing is a process that has given the pupils increased confidence in their own ability and imaginative concepts.  Watching their plays performed will be a life memory and a hugely important part of their academic journey.
