West End in Schools supports teachers who are currently delivering or preparing to deliver Unit 4 in their centres by providing versatile strategies straight from the professional rehearsal room.



Students leave the workshop with a stronger understanding of the directorial possibilities of the text and knowing specific rehearsal and performance techniques to support their written responses in Unit 4.


We offer workshops to A’ Level groups of up to 15 students.

Our facilitator works intensively with the group so that quality outcomes are achieved.  It is strongly advisable that students have an initial understanding of the text before the session.

3 hour session: £249 plus VAT
Full day (up to 5 contact hours): £400 plus VAT
(additional travel costs may apply outside of Greater London)

Practical skills-based workshops:

We offer a practical workshop to develop your students’ understanding of your chosen play from the viewpoint of a director working with a company preparing the script for performance. 

Working with a highly crafted professional director, students will take part in a practical workshop exploring plot, language, forms, characterisation and stagecraft to communicate ideas to an audience as a director.

A range of rehearsal techniques and devices will be explored practically, with a focus on directorial approaches to the text in rehearsal and performance.  Students are supported to understand how the director works with a company to achieve an overall concept.

The session will be rooted in practical rehearsal technique related to the text, to support your students’ preparation for the Unit 4 exam.
