Projects

We are always delighted to be approached by schools and other organisations to consider ways of working together. If you would like to discuss ways in which we can help you, please contact Beth Flintoff on 01635 570927 or email outreach@watermill.org.uk.

THEATRE IN EDUCATION TOURING
The Watermill has a reputation for high quality Theatre in Education touring, including our 2012 production of Othello and Dr Faustus in 2011, which toured secondary schools and theatres.
‘We will be happy to recommend you to other schools but might prefer to keep your excellence a secret if you become too popular!’ (Rory Darling, Head of Drama, Ludgrove School, Wokingham)

FEDERATION OF RURAL PRIMARY SCHOOLS PROJECT
This extraordinary biennial project involves working with seven small rural primary schools to create a production, performed on The Watermill’s own stage, involving some 160 pupils. The project has been running for fourteen years.

"That was so good! I don't want it to end!" (Megan, aged 11yrs)

"It was a fantastic opportunity for our children and one that they will remember for a very long time." (Parent)

"I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you from everyone here.... The children have done nothing but rave about it ever since!" (Teacher)

EDUCATION & BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP WORKSHOPS
The Education & Business Partnership’s Take a Chance programme is designed to stimulate the confidence and business skills of GCSE students to inspire them to think about their future careers. Held at Vodafone, a series of workshops throughout the year, delivered by our Watermill facilitators, develop teamwork, presentation and organisation skills in some 100 students from schools across West Berkshire.

Our core Education and Outreach work is generously supported by The Dr. Mortimer and Theresa Sackler Foundation.
