Numbers, shapes, patterns and rhythms – maths is all around us. Our interactive workshops situate students in fictional worlds in which the ability to understand and manipulate numbers and/or shapes is of paramount importance. See Programmes.
Designed to show how exciting the world of words is, our innovative workshops range from explorations of the Power of Poetry to experiential approaches to creative writing to interactive MasterClasses on set plays and novels. See Programmes.
Science is dynamic and dramatic – and our approaches mirror this by supporting students in cementing and consolidating their understanding and scientific vocabulary through theatre games and structured improvisations! See Programmes.
History depends on perspective – who’s telling the story? In these exciting programmes, students can meet and work with such pivotal figures as Samuel Pepys, King Henry VIII and Emmeline Pankhurst – or ordinary people from Ancient Greece to the Home Front! See Programmes.
- Visual Arts
Get your whole school drawing with our range of collaborative drawing programmes for children, young people and teachers. Our workshops focus on drawing but make cross-curricular links to maths, literacy and science. See Programmes.
These programmes provide students with a stimulating environment in which to consider enterprise skills in their widest sense – and to reflect on how these skills can support them in their learning. See Programmes.
- Teacher CPD
All firmly rooted in pedagogy these highly experiential programmes model a range of innovative techniques, methodologies and strategies that can be implemented the very next day and shared with colleagues. See Programmes.
Experience shows that young people respond best to change when given time to prepare. So our approaches to transition, rooted in the visual arts and/or drama, are suitable all year round – and can be adapted for the changes from KS1 to 2, KS2 to 3 and KS3 to 4. See Programmes.
