Theatre in Schools Scotland

Theatre in Schools Scotland has been developed by Imaginate and the National Theatre of Scotland, in partnership with leading performing arts companies/organisations for children and young people: Catherine Wheels Theatre CompanyVisible Fictions and Starcatchers.

As part of a three-year pilot project we are presenting a programme of quality theatre and dance performances in schools all over the country. We are working with teachers, local authorities and arts organisations to create an environment where the arts are valued and integrated across learning.

“The impact of the visit has been utterly transformational for us. For most of our children (many of whom experience rural or social/financial deprivation) this was their first (and probably only) experience of live theatre. Their learning, growth and development have been significantly impacted by the visit in terms of their raised aspirations, interest in the arts and focus on achievement." Gigha Primary School
