Creative Schools

Creative opportunities for schools

We know that it’s going to be hard connecting your pupils with creative opportunities outside the curriculum this year, but we’ve got two offers, designed for both Primary and Secondary age pupils, that we hope might be of interest.

School Theatre Visits

Firstly, if you’re able to consider an offsite activity, we’d like to invite you and your pupils to visit the Northcott for a free behind-the-scenes tour, supported by an interactive session introducing children and young people to the theatre’s work, including a demonstration of how artists use light and sound to create theatrical magic.

Digital Creation Competition

Secondly, if, like us, you’re interested in how lockdown has pushed storytelling and performance off stage and online, then maybe you’d like to get your pupils involved in a free Devon-wide Digital Creation Competition that we’ll be launching in the New Year. We’re going to start by publishing a toolkit of inspiring ‘How To?’ resources designed to help children and young people think about digital storytelling and kickstart their own projects. We’ll then be looking for entries in two age categories, and the best work we receive will be featured on the Northcott website, visited every year by tens of thousands of people.

For information about either of these opportunities, or to talk to us about other ways in which we might be able able to help you, drop us a line at the link below.
