The Octagon Theatre’s Creative Learning & Education Schools Programme aims to offer Somerset schools the opportunity to learn from, and collaborate with, world-class performance companies from across the UK.
Access to this programme will inspire students, raise aspirations, and build creative confidence in teachers.
We are delighted to announce that for 2023-2024 we will be delivering in partnership with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO), Motionhouse Dance and Wise Children Theatre Company.
The offer for schools will include:
Our programme seeks to broaden familiarity with the arts from a young age, convey the message ‘this is for you’, whilst offering all students a platform to perform and increase appetite for engagement and creativity.
All our programmes are designed to enrich classroom teaching and ensure all young people have the opportunity to be inspired by the arts.
