A Victorian Christmas

School Workshops - The Drama Hut

Home / School Workshops


The Drama Hut believes that schools should have ready access to drama in order to support learning and was created in order to provide an on-site service that teachers could access, to help bring the curriculum to life. Through drama, role play and improvisation, children are able to experience a subject, complementing and enhancing their learning in the classroom.
With a wide range of topics to choose from, let us create a unique learning experience for your school.
With over two hundred schools visited last year, we are passionate about the impact that drama within schools, can have on children’s education.

“We have used The Drama Hut on several occasions to help enrich and inspire the children’s experience of the curriculum. All facilitators have been well prepared and able to use their dramatic skills to deliver well-pitched and interesting workshops. Children are always excited after the session and are able to speak confidently about what they have learnt.”
