We’re here to help.

We want to support every young person to reach their potential allowing them to beat their drum louder and extend their reach further than ever before.

Performance Programme

Our performance programme will always offer productions for schools and young people, with workshops linked to productions or bespoke sessions available for schools and groups to book. Tours give a glimpse of what it means to be part of a production or encourage schools to find out more about the centuries of showmanship, joy and drama that have played out in our Hall. All of our educational work is developed with teachers, meeting curriculum objectives and delivered by professionals in their field.

Hall for Cornwall Schools Partnership Programme

Every two years, we work intensively with a selection of Primary & Secondary schools across Cornwall through a programme of activities and events that are co – designed and bespoke to each school and each school’s needs. Following an application process, our partnership schools embark on a two year journey with us, benefiting pupils of all ages and abilities, as well as teachers, support staff and families.

We provide schools support and a creative outlet for young people & staff alike that may include dance, drama, music, writing, reading and performance skills alongside supporting pupils and teachers with work in developing literacy and social development, and championing wellbeing.

We help our partnership schools measure impact on wellbeing, creativity, enjoyment, attendance and attainment.

Throughout the fulfilling two-year partnership with us, schools work with the best creative educationalists and professionally practising artists through a programme that offers an enriched experience which is delivered with care.

Please contact the Get Creative team to find out more.

Royal Shakespeare Company Associate Schools Programme

Our associates programme with the Royal Shakespeare Company is targeted towards schools who want to develop and improve access to Shakespeare and deliver the best in classroom teaching through active drama techniques.

For students, the programme involves dynamic ways to learn about Shakespeare, artist-led projects, and performance opportunities on our stage, in our local community and at the RSC in Stratford-Upon-Avon.​

Every year, we invite 12 schools to apply for a place on this 24 month programme which include performance opportunities, RSC practitioner workshops, director and choreographer support and a support network of teachers who exchange ideas and share best practice throughout the programme. This is led and coordinated with our Lead Associate School, Treviglas Academy, who have led the programme for the past 5 years.
