We love working in partnership with local primary and secondary schools, both online and in person!
Our experienced artists offer a variety of practical workshops suitable for primary and secondary school drama, including:
Creating a Character
Shakespeare in Performance
Practitioner Focus: Katie Mitchell
Accent and Dialect Support
We deliver exciting, accessible projects with local schools too, using drama to explore a variety of topics such as inclusion, school transitions and literature, introducing children to practical storytelling from an early age.
In 2021 we initiated a new programme with Safeguarding Children in Banbury. CTC created and continue to deliver forum theatre workshops on substance misuse and peer pressure.
We also deliver CPD for teachers, empowering them to use drama more widely across the curriculum.
Looking for something specific? With the wide range of industry professionals we work with, we can tailor workshops to your needs- just ask!
Don't just take our word for it- here's what the teachers say!
"We were overwhelmed with the performance the children displayed this afternoon. with only 1 hour per class, they were so confident and enthusiastic, it was wonderful to see!"
"CTC's facilitator had such a lovely manner that the children instantly felt at ease and confident to have a go at the activities."
"All staff were impressed with the slick delivery of sessions. Many talked about the calming, background music that played throughout the warm-up and performance which was simple but so effective."
"Our staff all feel much more confident to use drama approaches to explore subjects in the future!"
Do You Accept?
"How do I know everything about you? Because You. Told. Me"
Hannah, Sammy and Justin are lost in a world with no boundaries. Somebody is watching them. Who is he? What does he want? And is their past really as buried as they thought?

"Do You Accept?" is our new interactive film project. It follows our drugs awareness play ‘The Buzzed’ (now seen by over 100,000 young people across the UK), and explores the internet and social media.
The 40 minute film has been developed with teachers, young people and community safety officers across Oxfordshire and covers topics as diverse as cyberbullying, oversharing and personal security. It sees CTC returning to what they do best: creating drama that doesn’t patronise its audience but sparks debate, entertains and moves in equal measure.
"Do You Accept?" is accompanied by 90 minute online workshops led by the film's actors, in which Year 6 children can explore the themes through practical forum theatre exercises, group discussion and a range of further creative activities provided in a teacher's resource pack.
"Do You Accept?" is presented in partnership with Arts Council England, Thames Valley Police, Cherwell District Council, Safeguarding Children in Banbury, Oxfordshire Community Foundation, West Northants Council and The Northamptonshire Fire Police Crime Comissioner.
