Theatres

A school trip to live theatre can help increase literary knowledge, and can also improve tolerance and promote empathy among students by being better able to recognise and appreciate what others think and feel. In a modern world addicted to technology, theatre provides a way for pupils and adults to make imaginative and creative choices, and to think of new & exciting ideas to express themselves and enhance their concentration & communication and written skills, which can help in all areas of life including school. Theatre visits and art venues bring play and humour and laughter to learning, leading to motivation and improved self-esteem, successfully teaching social awareness through poems, stories, legends and myth. Many schools use theatre related activities as stimulus, interlinked with various Key stages 1 to 4 studies; often found to be beneficial to students undertaking GSCE drama. Please see our listed theatre choices and workshops available.
