Utilising the skills of our company of actors and facilitators, as well as the expertise of an experienced teacher and pastoral Head of Year, the company can devise creative bespoke workshops which will engage young people in academic or PSHE topics through a mixture of dramatic performance and group activities. Workshops can also focus on issues such as Road Safety or Health and Well Being to meet the needs of Local Authorities.
GCSE Poetry: A dramatic and interactive focus by our team of actors on up to four poems, selected by the school, brings language, imagery, rhyme and metre to life as well as allowing an in-depth exploration of the poets’ creation of mood and exploration of theme. The reiteration of key lines and phrases, and the association of action and expression with the poetry also assist the development of learning strategies for examination purposes.
“The workshop had a very high academic content and, looking at the returns and the motivation of the girls who were involved since, I would certainly say the workshop removed the barriers that many students build up to poetry. I felt that I was dealing with an experienced and knowledgeable organisation that had the interests of the students at heart.”

An Inspector Calls: With the help of a team of actors and a director, Year 11 students explore the characters, their motivations and attitudes though a focus on the dramatic presentation of relevant extracts and interaction between the characters and the students.
“It was really good and really helpful. I loved the fact that it was interactive as it helped everyone to focus more and I was able to understand the characters’ viewpoints so it will be easier to write about them in an essay.”

PSHE Mental Health workshop: The Company travelled to Worthing to contribute to a day intended to raise awareness of physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. The company’s workshops focused on anxiety caused through the breakup of friendships: the causes, consequences and what to do about it.
“Thank you so very much for the two superb performance workshops you led with our Year 10 students this morning. I know that the students enjoyed the performance and discussions and they will have taken a lot from the session.”
Subject Leader Personal Development, Davison CE High School for Girls
