Take Art offers Secondary School Drama Teachers, and non-specialist Primary Teachers and those working in Special Schools and PRUs, support to complement the delivery of drama within the curriculum.

Our programme features DramaNets, termly networking and CPD training opportuniites for all teachers delivering drama or using drama to meet their curriculum needs in all education settings.  

We also offer schools a choice of affordable professional touring performances and workshops to come into your school settings.  in addition to this, every year we aim to put on performance opportunites for your students by holding Secondary and Primary School Drama Festivals.  This is a chance for students to perform on a professional stage and share their work with their peers.

Finally, we can help to broker stronger working relationships between Somerset theatre venues and schools, eg by offering discounted tickets to some shows.

All the above opportunites for the academic year 2015/16 are listed in our InspirED Dance & Drama booklet.  Your school will have been sent a copy before the end of Summer Term 2015 or you can read a copy here.  All the events on offer are listed on the Events & Training pages of this website.
