Curve is committed to engaging children and young people and their teachers with a range of cultural opportunities and experiences. There are many ways that schools, colleges and universities can get involved with Curve:
Our learning team works extensively with both students and teachers to deliver learning programmes on any of our Made at Curve productions.
We can also put you in touch with visiting companies and their education teams to deliver learning around our wider programme.
Our workshops are designed to open up the world of theatre – to get behind what’s on stage, and to reveal the hidden process of a rehearsal room. They offer the opportunity to engage more deeply with the artists, subject matter, and theatrical processes in our artistic programme as well as make links to your curriculum.
Workshops in your school, led by one of our specialist education practitioners cost £200 for a half day and £300 for a full day.
Discounted rate for Artsmark schools, Arts Award groups or The City Classroom members – £175 for a half day and £250 for a full day.

“We thought it was amazing! The children loved it, and the parents gave us universally positive feedback too.”

Are you a school or community group working with
young people studying Arts Award? If so we would
love to hear from you.
We have several Arts Award advisors on our Learning Team and can offer bespoke activities that contribute towards any level of Arts Award, including seeing and reviewing our productions, opportunities to meet casts, creatives and professionals working in our venue.
We offer workshops and professional development for teachers on selected Made at Curve productions. These are available when you book tickets for your school group to selected productions, or as part of our Curve Education Network meetings. As well as giving an insight into the making of the show, these workshops will provide useful exercises and ideas for your students.

“I love the fact that this amazing theatre is so community focused and the opportunities that it offers for both students and teachers is great! I love coming to Curve to participate in the Drama Teachers’ Network meetings and I have brought my students for behind the scenes days and workshops, which they have really enjoyed.”
— Ann Mari Brook, Stonehill School
