We’ve had a busy couple of years in the Learning Department at South Hill Park Arts Centre, so we’ve made a short video to celebrate 24 months of creativity – pre and post pandemic.

We have a new strategy for 2022-25 that we can’t wait to share with you in the New Year.

Thank you for allowing our pupils to come and see the Tempest. I think it was a great experience for all; certainly pupils were discussing it in the car park after with particular praise given to “making it a musical” and “the way the ropes changed”. As a teacher it was lovely to hear pupils discussing Shakespeare with the same level of interest normally reserved for Love Island! Myself and the other three teachers who attended will definitely be coming back soon.

Teacher, Easthampstead Park School

Thank you Mark for allowing our child such an incredible opportunity. She has really enjoyed herself throughout the whole process and made some new friendships. Despite being autistic, she coped brilliantly with all the change and a new environment to where she has performed previously, and as a family are very grateful for the experience.
