School Workshops - The Drama Hut

Home / School Workshops

Please note: Outreach Workshops only - We visit your school! We can visit schools in London & South East, North

At The Drama Hut, we provide on-site history workshops, bringing subjects to life. For many schools, this is a cost effective and convenient alternative to expensive school trips. Through drama, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.

Choose from over 16 topics or let us create a bespoke workshop for your school. All we require on the day of our visit, is a clear space to work in and a member of staff to observe or join in the experience.

Current School Trip Offer

Following the unforeseen closure of schools, we have adapted our workshops to be able to offer schools an online experience. Workshops will last approximately 45 minutes and include a pre recorded short video which will be forwarded ahead of the scheduled session and include some optional 'prep' for children. We are offering sessions at a reduced price of £100 plus VAT whilst schools remain closed and will review this as things change. We remain committed to providing support to teachers in enhancing school topics in a fun and educational way during these difficult times.

As the pressure on schools to watch costs and the logistics of taking children on trips increases, we believe that we offer a viable and exciting alternative. All our team are trained both in facilitation and performance. They have experience working with children of all ages and share a common passion for learning through drama. All facilitators are DBS checked and implement The Drama Hut CPP (Child Protection Policy).
