CPD Masterclasses

Join us for a evening of CPD, developing techniques to build confidence in exploring creative topics with primary school children.

Creative CPD for Primary Schools
I loved the fact that we hardly stood still for the whole 2 hours and it really brought me out of my shell and got me interacting with text in a whole new way! This will 100% affect my teaching practice - I took away so many ideas that will work well in lots of different classes, not just English!

Upcoming CPD Masterclasses:

We will be announcing more CPD Masterclasses soon to take place in the Summer term. Keep up to-date on our social media or through our monthly newsletter.


The Masterclass, led by a creative professional, will be a practical exploration of the topic, equipping you with a variety of activities for approaching the subject with 4-11 year olds. Following this there will be a Q&A and discussion. The evening has plenty of opportunities to network with other teachers and our creative team.


Attendees will come away with:

  • A set of tools for approaching creative topics with primary school children

  • Confidence in leading creative activities

  • Knowledge of how to use performing arts activities as a stimulus for cross-curricular activity (such as PE or creative writing)

  • A resource pack containing handy notes about what was covered in the Masterclass

  • A certificate of completion

Past CPD Masterclasses 2018/19:

  • 8th November 2018 - Exploring Shakespeare in Primary Schools

  • 30th January 2019: Exploring Children’s Books Through Dance

This masterclass was so inspiring. I loved all the tips and tricks provided to help engage students of all ages. I will definitely incorporate these techniques in my teaching going forward.
