Through our partnership programme with schools and colleges, we can create a bespoke range of creative workshops, projects and activities to support all areas of the curriculum, well-being and after school activities alongside substantially discounted rates for shows and performances.
We can support with Arts Award and GCSE Drama practical assessments as well as arranging theatre visits to learn about all aspects of working life and careers in the arts and theatre.
Workshops and creative activities can be delivered in school or at the Core at Corby Cube. We work with Primary and Secondary Schools, colleges and home-educated groups.
Some of the workshops we offer include:
Discover in a Day
Students can achieve their Discover Arts Award in just a day by taking part in fun packed, creative sessions including dance and visual arts.
Involve the whole school from Reception to Year 6 in workshops delivered by a theatre director that get them learning through drama and play about Shakespeare’s characters, language, stories and history. Schools can choose from either A Midsummer Night’s Dream or The Tempest.
Play in a Day
Working with a professional theatre practitioner, students can devise and develop their own storyline and have a performance to share by the end of the school day.
