Frequently asked questions

Click the questions below to reveal the answers.

How long do the workshops run for?

Each workshop runs for approximately 50 minutes. However, we like to schedule a full hour per session to allow time for the class to settle in.

Can we book just the one workshop?

You can, but our minimum cost is for a half day. So for the same cost, your school can enjoy three workshops instead of one.

How much are the workshops?

Please see here for the costs. You can book a morning of up to 3 workshops or a full day of up to 5 workshops.

How many pupils can we have in a workshop?

Each workshop caters for up to 30 pupils.

Do I have to have the same topic throughout the day?

Not at all! In fact, we structure our workshops so that they offer a great deal of flexibility to teachers. All of our topics are available throughout the year so we could deliver different workshops to each year group - all on one day.

What kind of space do you need?

A hall or studio is ideal as there is a lot of energy in our workshops: the whole class will be encouraged to move around. We can run a session in a classroom as long as it is clear space, has plenty of room for movement of the whole class and is clear of hazards.

What is your availability?

We have a large team of fantastic workshop leaders who work for us across London and the South of England. We can normally accommodate your preferred dates if we are given a few week's notice. However, even if it’s the next day, please do get in contact as we will try our best to get someone to you. If you are located in a rural location or in the South-West, we can still visit, but may require a little more notice.

All teachers were very impressed with the pace and the content of the workshop. Laura has it pitched perfectly.

Very pleased with the sessions. The children loved them and really brought the different subjects to life for them. Also pleased that Laura was very good at controlling behaviour.

The feedback from all of the teachers in the sessions was that Eleanor was highly informative, engaging and a lot of fun! Her behaviour management was outstanding and her delivery of content was effective! Every class loved their session and would definitely love to have Eleanor back at our school!

Lauren was really inspiring both for children and teachers. All workshops were pitched well and we all thoroughly enjoyed the morning. Thank you!

James was amazing, the boys absolutely loved their anti-bullying superhero explorer workshop. He took time to talk to me about the different classes and find out about the boys and their learning. The teachers all commented on how brilliant he was with the boys and how engaging the boys were in the drama workshops. A big thank you from us all at Hawkesdown House School!

– Ms. F Galligan

We are thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Sam was fantastic. Highly recommend.

– Ms. S Goodman

As always, the children really enjoyed the workshops. They came back to class buzzing about their experiences and the theme which linked in well with our literacy festival theme. We always enjoy having the Perform Team in at our school.

– Ms. B Thakker

Katie really was fantastic! The workshops were all very engaging, fun and interactive for the children. The children loved it and remembered the key message, "zip it, block it, flag it" with the actions!
