Teachers' Forum

We run termly open teachers forums, workshops and provide resources for working with drama in school. If you would like to be invited to our next forum, please email participation@royalcourttheatre.com to be added to our mailing list.

Our work with our teachers panel, exam boards and the London Theatre Consortium’s Creative Learning Symposium, demonstrated an urgent need for us to engage with senior leadership teams in schools. Therefore our most recent Teachers Forum extended an invitation to SLT and focused upon thinking together, creatively about how to use the arts to work with young people at risk of exclusion. Attendance included a free ticket to the critically acclaimed Anna Deavere Smith’s piece Notes from the Field which prompted a very insightful and useful set of responses.
