The Play House offers a range of services to help support your work with young people, with a specialism in delivering workshops for Primary School children aged 3-11, spanning from EYFS to KS2. The Play House workshops are a unique way to develop, consolidate and deepen your pupil’s learning. 

We want to inspire teachers as well as pupils, which is why, aside from our workshops which demonstrate many teaching strategies and techniques that you can use yourself, we also offer in depth CPD to help develop teachers' confidence in using drama as a teaching method. 

One of our latest special projects.... 

We were lucky enough this year to gain support from Millennium Point Charitable Trust in delivering a special STEAM project 'Daughters of Invention' for KS2 children. We brought the exciting nature of engineering and scientific innovation to life through drama in this unique project,  produced in partnership with real engineers from the University of Birmingham.
