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.

feedback on 'hope' ks2 programme


"Words in an email from a parent of a child who took part in this truly wonderful piece:


I just wanted to let you know that the Hope workshop made a big impression on my daughter (name removed). She came home very excited to tell us about it and then insisted that we (her, brother, Mum and Dad) re-enact the entire play with her, ending with the dropping of our leaves into a well and expressing our hopes and fears. It was clearly a well thought out and entertaining workshop because every detail appeared to have stayed with her. The fact that the school took the trouble to invest in this type of activity on top of all the additional planning and responsibilities that Covid has brought about, is really tremendous, thank you.

Well done The Playhouse - truly inspiring!

Also I must add that after a workshop, children were independently playing a game outside where they were sharing feelings and pretending to put these into the well. It has genuinely struck a cord with our children."
