We believe every child should have the opportunity to be creative. To make that happen we've made it our mission to work with as many children as possible in schools across North Yorkshire. Every school has different needs so we've got a range of ways we can work together including:

  • In school clubs

  • Workshops linked to live shows at the SJT

  • Playing Shakespeare workshops

  • Off stage skills sessions

  • Industry days for students

  • Professional development events for teachers

You can read more about everything we have to offer in this brochure.

How we work with Primary Schools

We believe that if we can get children and young people involved in creative activity from the very start then children will develop a love of the arts that will last a lifetime. In our time, we’ve run dance workshops, taught costume design, and got classes singing and writing their own songs. We’ve also run after-school clubs and had young people performing their own plays on our stages. If you’re interested in seeing how we might be able to work together, please get in touch.

How we work with Secondary Schools

Over the years, we’ve worked with many secondary schools, sixth form colleges and further education establishments across North Yorkshire – devising and delivering sessions to meet all kinds of needs. We’ve also supported curricular activity through drama sessions, attended careers fairs and offered work experience opportunities to give young people the chance to try working in the creative industries. If there’s anything you think we can work together on, please get in touch.
