Bringing learning to life through drama.

Every week, over 5000 children attend Perform after-school and weekend workshops at venues across London, the South East and South West. The classes focus on developing confidence and social skills in a fun and lively way via the performing arts. With over 15 years of experience, all our teachers are recruited, DBS and reference-checked, trained and employed directly by us.  So, you can be confident that your pupils will be in the very best of hands. 

Perform For Schools offer:

Foundation, KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum Explorer Workshops: These popular workshops use children’s natural love of drama, role-play and improvisation to spark their imaginations and stimulate their interest in Foundation, KS1 and KS2 topics. They are available for a wide range of subjects and each one is closely aligned to the National Curriculum. Explorers use imaginative creative resources, performing arts-based exercises and role-play scenarios to provide a new look at traditional subjects.

Easy to set up After School Clubs: individually designed weekly workshops running throughout the term based on a range of themes and designed to help develop confidence and communication skills.

Inspiring Creative Learning and Literacy INSETS: developed to provide a useful set of skills, best practices and resources on the use of drama to inspire creative ways of teaching across the curriculum.

Black History Icons

Suitable for KS1 and KS2 the children will be taken on a journey through Black History and come face to face with iconic figures that have devoted their lives to giving the black population equal rights.

* Learn about Mary Seacole and how she was rejected because of her race 
* Use drama techniques, supported by music, to understand the lives of Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King
* Bring to life characters such as Rosa Parks and improvise scenes from the day of the bus boycott

Learning objectives:
