Wilson Stuart works in partnership with Open Theatre to deliver weekly drama sessions to some of our class groups.

So what is drama at Wilson Stuart?

  • Non-verbal physical drama with the use of music and simple props to encourage imaginative play.
  • We create a safe and comfortable environment which allows the pupils to freely express themselves.
  • The focus of the work is always the same: the development of creative and personal skills that support learning across the curriculum. These include confidence, verbal and non-verbal communciation skills, social cognition, curiosity, empathy, imagination, literacy and narrative skills, social interaction and creativity.

So what is the impact of our work?

  • Developing positive relationships
  • Becoming self-aware
  • Beginning to regulate their emotions and behaviour
  • Vital communication skills for life
  • Empowering the students to make real and meaningful choices
  • Ensuring the development of positive self-image and self-esteem
  • Developing potential talent
