About our Theatre in Education Programme

Theatre bringing the curriculum to life

Theatre is an amazing way to engage young people with active learning. It is fun and uniquely effective at helping young people understand life from different perspectives.

Using theatre and drama has a lasting impact on pupils learning. It supports the PSHE personal wellbeing curriculum, Citizenship, Sustainable Communities, Healthy Schools, Drama and English as well as linking to Science, Maths, Art and Geography. It helps produces confident individuals, successful learners and positive citizens.

Face Front can also provide accredited training including Arts Awards and help schools to achieve the Artsmark and engage effectively with the recommendations of the Henley Review.
