All of the Learning workshops are suitable for special schools and can be tailored to suit the needs of your students. Please enquire.

All of our Behind the Scenes sessions can be used to support the delivery of Arts Award.

Learn beyond the classroom, discover the theatre and find out about professional artists in a practical Careers Day on site at the Theatre.

We’ll inspire your pupils, giving them the knowledge they need to help complete their award.

These sessions can be held throughout the year so please enquire about dates.
