More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Every child’s imagination should be inspired by the arts.

Our shows and workshops are highly creative cultural experiences - which children will remember for ever.

West End in Schools offers pantomimes, dance and drama workshops, musical theatre shows, and Shakespeare workshops to primary schools all over the UK.

We’re the only school theatre company with trained actors drawn from the world of London’s West End theatre.

Our team includes performers who have sung in musicals such as Wicked and Matilda, danced in Chicago and Shrek, and acted on the stages of the National Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse. Over the last few years they have worked with and performed to well over a million children.

Using our experience as an Olivier Award winning West End production company we bring the best writers, directors and actors working in the industry into productions and workshops for schools just like yours.

The Workshop

Our Anti-Bullying drama workshop uses professional theatrical techniques to encourage respect and celebrate diverse viewpoints

Bullying is an issue that children need to be equipped to address.

In one day we spread a positive and inclusive anti-bullying message and use drama techniques alongside examples from children’s books to help prevent bullying - while unifying the children through the activity itself.

Our workshops are facilitated by professional actors who are also experienced in working in primary schools. Our professionals know how to quickly build trust among the group and adapt to their specific needs.

These sessions last between 40 and 50 minutes for EYFS and KS1, and between 45 and 70 minutes for KS2. Our recommended schedule for a full day includes 5 sessions of 50 minutes each.

Workshop Content

The children use drama-based games and facilitated storytelling exercises to:

  • Explore and celebrate what makes them, and others, unique.

  • Identify different types of bullying.

  • Imagine how bullying makes other people feel.

  • Learn to see themselves, others and their relationships from different perspectives.

  • Discover that they can identify problems and take individual and/or collective action to prevent bullying.

  • Create a 'Creative Conclusion' by working as a team and embodying many of the qualities they’ve been learning about, such as openness to alternative viewpoints and willingness to challenge the status quo.

Learning Objectives

  • To appreciate diverse viewpoints and celebrate what makes them, and others, unique.

  • To identify different types of bullying and imagine how it makes other people feel.
