We love the power of words, so we've got a whole range of enjoyable and engaging Poetry workshops - for pupils of all ages to enjoy. Our workshops include in-person sessions, as well as live streamed workshops beamed straight into your classroom - and resource packages which allow you to host your own whole-school poetry day.

Longer workshops will also see pupils gaining experience in presentation skills as we support them in exploring the most effective ways to deliver their poems vocally. We can also provide a Poetry assembly to kick-start your poetry day in school! Our poetry workshops are available throughout the school year - and can be adapted to suit any theme or text, connecting literacy right across the curriculum.

Got a song to sing? Beats to drop? A cause to rant about?! Then get involved with Demo Tapes – a 12-week project for 13 – 18 yr-olds who want to remix, sample and be inspired by protest songs of the past to make music about the issues of today. You will work with leading musicians, lyricists & electronic music experts to create your own tracks & lyrics in response to protest songs from the North West Sound Archive - whether you’re into hip hop, grime, folk, dub or anything in between! Workshops will happen online to begin with, moving to in-person from June if it is safe to do so. At the end of the project you will have the chance to perform your work in Manchester and Liverpool alongside young people from Brighter Sounds (Manchester) and More Music (Morecambe). No computer, music software or instrumental skill necessary. We can provide devices & data to help access online sessions. You may use this course to gain a nationally accredited Bronze Arts Award.

In Autumn 2020, LAStheatre toured their outdoor theatre production into schools and had a great response from classes in Reception to Year 3. Teachers called the show: “inspirational”, “Year 1 absolutely loved it, even children who I thought might struggle, got closer to the stage as the show went on” and “A great opportunity at a difficult time, great for everyone’s wellbeing.”   As lockdown eases again, LAStheatre are returning to their converted outdoor caravan theatre to bring a new high-quality live theatre production into schools, whilst using the power of theatre to open discussion and encourage conversation.   This July, LAStheatre will be touring our production, ‘The Rascally Diner’ to primary schools in Liverpool. Based on the book ‘The Rascally Cake’ by Jeanne Willis and Korky Paul, this fun-filled theatre production with songs and silliness is all about food, food choices and the environment for Year 2 - 6.   Please get in touch with Liz to discuss bringing this joyous production into your school this summer term.   If the cost of the show is prohibitive, please get in touch with us about our available bursaries.

Each spring term, we give year 12 students the opportunity to publicly exhibit their work.
Students chose themes and voted on Dreams, which has allowed them to explore the concept in any way, shape, or form that they wish (including Nightmares). Students from each creative subject have made outcomes based on this theme, which means that students in more than one subject have the challenge of making diverse responses!
Students have been able to explore themes of horror, imagination, escapism, and imagining ideal possibilities. We have really enjoyed seeing how students’ responses are so personal, and this will also be an opportunity to develop more personal work for their portfolios, whether for university applications next year, or creative careers.
We hope you enjoy them too!
