Box Clever are delighted to offer bespoke workshop days, designed by our team in conversation with you, to create a tailor-made day of workshops for your students. These budget-flexible days are available on a range of topics, primarily focussed on English and Drama, but we are always happy to discuss any other ideas for workshops! Below are some examples of sessions we have run – these can all be used as a starting point to design your day
