A group of 8 year 8 pupils were offered the opportunity to take part in the Schools Festival 2019 at The Dukes Theatre. This year’s theme was ‘What makes your community unique?’ This fitted in perfectly with the theme of our KS3 Drama/Resilience course. The project consisted of four workshop sessions run by artists from a Lancashire based theatre company, The Knotted Project. They worked with the group during their Resilience lessons and then they performed what they have devised at the Dukes Theatre in Lancaster on Thursday 6th June.

This was a fantastic opportunity for the group to work with professional actors and perform on a professional stage, alongside other local schools. ​There were awesome – very brave and overcoming some challenges they have had for a long time!!
