Explore Days

Explore Days give you the chance to have a range of drama workshops for lots of classes, in just one day.  It’s an exciting day of topic learning which creates a real buzz around school.

An Explore Day is perfect for:

  • Schools with more than one class per year group
  • Schools who want to give many classes an exciting experience in one day

It’s a really simple format – you let us know how many classes you’d like us to work with (maximum of 4 classes in a day) and tell us about which topics you’d like us to cover.  We help you plan the day, taking into account your hall use and your breaks and lunchtime.

We then send your teachers a survey link so they can be specific about which aspects of the topic they’d like the drama workshop to cover.

Because we plan the workshops in a bespoke way, you can choose any topics for your Explore Day.  We’ve done some wild and wacky topics over the last year and we’re always up for a challenge!

To show you how an Explore Day can work, we’ve given you some examples below:
