THE PLAY HOUSE
Meaningful participation for every child.
The Play House Theatre in Education company has been helping schools bring the awe and wonder of the world into their classrooms for 30 years. We work in over fifty schools a year with our touring programme of workshops which bring the curriculum to life for children aged 3-11 and beyond. We also create bespoke projects for schools, offer CPD for teachers and work with a range of partners to put drama and imagination at the heart of the learning experience for children.
The safety of children, teachers and their families are important to us at all times. Click here to read about the measures The Play House has put in place to keep children and all school staff safe, including our new Social Distancing Policy.
Bring Creativity Into the Curriculum
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“…We have noticed a profound impact on the children’s ability to express themselves by using drama as a vehicle for communication. The sessions are interactive and inclusive of all abilities, needs and dispositions.
As a school, we find the range of contexts for the sessions a key benefit, as they expose pupils to new learning experiences which has enriched our curriculum.”
— Assistant Head Teacher, Montgomery Primary Academy
