SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
The Learning Team offer a range of curriculum-linked workshops, tours and projects for educational groups, using the exciting theatre environment to enthuse and inspire learning in a real world setting.
“…incredibly beneficial for helping students understand how a theatre works in a vocational context. The tour was superb”
Theatre Tours and
Come and explore Leeds’ most historic theatres at Leeds Grand Theatre or City Varieties Music Hall. Tours can be tailored to the needs of your pupils.
Workshops use a combination of individual and group work and a variety of activities including tours of the theatre where relevant to ensure all students gain the most from their visit (the theatre is a working building therefore access may not be possible in all areas). Our workshops are differentiated for KS3 and KS4 pupils. For more information download our Learning Programme .
Looking for something a bit different? Our bespoke workshops and projects are a great kick start for new topics or can support current work in an engaging and inspiring setting. Previous bespoke activities have included: Ancient Greek vs. Victorian Theatre, Imaginary Settings, Talking Teamwork, Spooks and Superstitions and Music Through History. If you’re interested please get in touch to discuss your ideas.
If you’re after a longer term engagement then our projects are a great way to inspire groups to develop new skills, apply knowledge, raise aspirations and build on confidence. Projects vary in length depending on need and can be planned in partnership with schools to ensure they address key areas. For more information download our Learning Programme .
We offer a limited number of work experience placements each year. Placements tend to last one week and are an opportunity to learn about Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House and the different departments within our organisation whilst gaining experience. Placements are intended for students in Year 10 or 11 and priority is given to a number of local targeted schools. If you wish to discuss opportunities for your students, please get in touch.
We offer a range of apprenticeships across different departments such as Technical Theatre, Front of House, and Community Arts. All vacancies are advertised here.
