Opportunities, Activities and Resources for schools

York Theatre Royal's Creative Engagement team works extensively throughout York and surrounding areas to forge partnerships with schools and colleges, offering activities, workshops and projects to teachers and students. Our experienced and dedicated educational practitioners work closely with teachers to create stimulating programmes in which productions are targeted, plays are unravelled and the processes of making and producing them is explored.

Bespoke workshops, INSETS for teachers, tour and industry days are available upon request, as well as education packs on selected productions.

We are in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company on their national Associate Schools programme, which aims to provide access to students and teachers with the best access to learning, experiencing and understanding Shakespeare. Our Playhouse project goes from strength to strength, commissioning new plays for KS2 every year in partnership with Polka children's theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Birmingham Rep and Bristol Old Vic.
