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.”
