Bringing learning to life through drama

What teachers say

Whether you’re looking for a fresh angle on a traditional topic, a fun weekly after school club or an inspiring INSET on using drama in the classroom,  a visit from Perform For Schools could be the answer.

Perform For Schools is the primary school division of Perform - the UK's leading provider of drama, dance and singing workshops for 4-12 year olds.

Every week, over 5000 children attend Perform after-school and weekend workshops at venues across London, the South East and South West. The classes focus on developing confidence and social skills in a fun and lively way via the performing arts. With over 15 years of experience, all our teachers are recruited, DBS and reference-checked, trained and employed directly by us.  So, you can be confident that your pupils will be in the very best of hands. 

Perform For Schools offer:

Foundation, KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum Explorer Workshops: These popular workshops use children’s natural love of drama, role-play and improvisation to spark their imaginations and stimulate their interest in Foundation, KS1 and KS2 topics. They are available for a wide range of subjects and each one is closely aligned to the National Curriculum. Explorers use imaginative creative resources, performing arts-based exercises and role-play scenarios to provide a new look at traditional subjects.

Easy to set up After School Clubs: individually designed weekly workshops running throughout the term based on a range of themes and designed to help develop confidence and communication skills.

Inspiring Creative Learning and Literacy INSETS: developed to provide a useful set of skills, best practices and resources on the use of drama to inspire creative ways of teaching across the curriculum.

The teachers who were in the hall with Laura were very complimentary about the relationship she formed with each group and reacted perfectly when she could see the few children who needed additional attention. She was professional throughout and all of the children came out of each session saying that they had fun and enjoyed the activities that they had done.

I have already asked our secretary to retain all of your information so that we can book another next year! Utterly brilliant! I particularly loved the control that Rachel had; she took no nonsense, but at the same time totally enthralled and involved all of the children!

– Pam Maskell - Albury C Of E

The team have been so helpful in sending through all relevant information prior to workshop. Luke was punctual, and very professional. Friendly and approachable

He engaged well with the younger children and they all had lots of fun! Everything ran very smoothly.

– Amy Tucker

We have always enjoyed Perform coming to our school and leading these drama workshops. James was absolutely brilliant from the word go. On arrival he was very friendly and asked many questions to inform him of the children he would be seeing and protocols we have. He led his workshops with great energy and enthusiasm despite the hot conditions of our hall. The children loved every minute of it!

– Sara Bond

Children all engaged and enjoying the input. Daisy made special efforts to include children with difficulties.

– Mike Murphy - Lancastrian infants

She was amazing, the children were so engaged and it was very age appropriate. Thank you very much.

– Ms. C Simpkins

Luke was wonderful with the children and the content and execution of his performance was brilliant! He noticed the children that need extra focus/support and sat near them to encourage them.

– Debbie Sopp

I didn't personally see the workshops but feedback from teachers was very positive - children were fully engaged throughout. Will definitely book again next year.

– Irene Johnston - Lowther Primary

Kayleigh was fantastic all day for our workshops! Despite running four workshops for our Reception classes, she was energetic and enthusiastic in equal measure! I had nothing but praise and positive comments from the rest of my staff as well as all of the children. They really enjoyed their workshops throughout the day and as a school we would like to say a big thank you to Kayleigh!

P.S. Can we have you again next year?!

– Mr D Michael

Children went away buzzing from the workshop, an enjoyable session. Thank you from Year 2 TH
