Educational Resources

We provide a range of educational resources and workshops to accompany all of our productions. Our Pilot Connects programme has been developed in response to the restrictions and uncertainties brought about by Covid-19 to provide different programmes of work suitable for English and Drama students in KS3 and KS4 and for teaching either in school or remotely.
