School Workshops - Bigfoot Arts Education

Home / School Workshops


Bigfoot has been a leading light in the world of arts education since 2000. This means that we are fully committed to providing schools with the VERY best creative experiences for their children and staff that money can buy!

We fully understand how high quality drama, music, dance and art interactions can enrich the curriculum and help bring learning to life through imaginative play and exploration. Therefore, each programme we offer is the perfect blend of fun, energy, interaction, reflection, and education.

Plus our staff, who we call ‘Bigfooters’ are highly qualified and skilled theatre practitioners who we have personally selected, trained and invested. Each Bigfooter has a DBS that we check every year and PLI up to the value of £5 million. All our facilitators are also trained in child protection & safeguarding children, health and safety, and equality & diversity policies and procedures.
We are proud to say that all performances and workshops have been thoroughly researched, tried and tested so that you can feel confident your students will have a truly wonderful experience with our Bigfooters!

Don’t just take our word for it though…

‘Fantastic, engaging, encouraging- what could be better?! Thank you Bigfoot for another amazing workshop programme!’ (Emma Hart, Hornpark Primary)

‘Once again, you have touched the hearts and minds of the children in our school; Bigfoot’s presence was immense and the children (and teachers) have learnt so much! I have to say that, out of all the external providers that I have used throughout the years, yours is the company that I will always have in my mind!’ (Siobhan Johnston, Bishop Winnington Ingram)

‘It was absolutely amazing – our Bigfooter was so knowledgeable, genuine and fun. And the programme was absolutely outstanding from start to finish. The children were instantly engaged and left full of enthusiasm and passion for the subject. One of the best workshop I've ever seen!’ (Stephanie Quinn, Sandringham School)

‘What a fabulous fun session to introduce a topic . The way the workshops were delivered meant that children could recall the story very well; it was so good that children and staff didn't want it to end!’ (Lorna Hancock, Windrush Primary)

‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming into school! Your facilitator gave all our students confidence and encouraged them to draw upon skills they didn’t know they had within. Our children had someone to look up to, and someone whose faith in them did not falter, and that is priceless to us. If there is any kind of star rating then you get a 10 out of 5!!’ (Kim Blythe, St John’s C of E Primary)

‘So much more than a workshop: it is the beginning of a conversation about one of the biggest issues children face, conducted in such a fun and engaging way.’ (Year 6 Teacher, St Boniface Primary)

Why book Bigfoot Arts Education for educational workshops into your school?

trip icon

We are the ‘go to’ company for many Primary schools to cover their teacher absences, whether ad-hoc, planned or unplanned. Whatever the reason, teachers know that when our Bigfooters enter theclassroom, something magical will start to happen!

By engagement through drama, children are ablto retain and process information in a completely different way in order to develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Our Bigfooters can not only help reach those children who are less able to focus and concentrate in normal classroom settings, but they enable all children to thrive and achieve through active participation.

Some schools use us to launch a curriculum topic at the start of term in order to get their children ‘buzzed up’ and ready to learn. Others contact us to book one off days that will cover a class teacher’s absence, and many use us at the end of term as a special treat to say a big ‘well done-go and have some creative fun!’ bottom line is, you can book a Creative Buzz Day any time; think of it as Creativity on Tap!

FORMAT: We can work with up to 5 class groups in a day from any key stage.

TOPICS: We have creative lessons for all curriculum topics covered. Just tell us what you want or, if you are going off curriculum, we can design a bespoke day.

COSTS: £235 plus VAT
