About us

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.

I thought Oliver controlled the sessions really well and the girls really had fun. He also varied what he did with each each age group.

– Pauline Azhar - Burgess Hill School

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.

– Toby Oxford

The children and staff were absolutely buzzing after the workshop thanks to Rhia.

– Mrs T Thomas

Confident, engaging and involved all children even those who spoke no English! Thank you

– Ms. C Margrave

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session with Chloe and were still talking about it at the beginning of the following week too. She spoke to them at a level appropriate for Year 1 pupils and made sure all students were engaged in the drama activities.

– Phil Smith

I thought Claire was brilliant - would definitely book again and have recommended it to other teachers in school. The children were all engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the session.

– Miss A Prince

Great activities that the children loved.

Good control of the children at all times as a teacher I never felt the class was getting out of hand even though they were very excited.

– Ms. A Allsop

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

Laura arrived in good time and carried out a fantastic days worth of workshops with all classes. In talking to the team every class really enjoyed the workshop. The workshop really fitted in with our history week and the children took a lot from it. 

– Laura Matier - North Farnborough Infant School

We had the most amazing time, he was great. Fantastic behaviour management, the pace of the lesson was fantastic and all my children were engaged from the start right to the end. Excellent behaviour management and very enthusiastic. One of my children told me "Miss, that was the best adventure I've ever been on." Top marks for Perform and Andrew!
