We’re providing a number of schools the opportunity to work with the Creative Learning department during a year-long affiliation.
Schools will have access to online resources, workshops, theatre tours, careers consultation and professional development opportunities.
We want to work with as many schools as we can so please reach out to us to take part in the scheme.
Applications will close on Monday 24th May and successful schools will be notified at the beginning of June. Let’s hit the ground running with plenty of drama when schools return in September!

The Schools Affiliation scheme was launched in 2018 and since then we have engaged with over 40 schools across Northern Ireland.
The aim of the scheme is to strengthen relationships with schools by developing communication links with teachers. We want to help support drama departments in schools by sharing advice, expertise and resources.
We believe the study of drama is vitally important, not just for those wishing to pursue a career within the arts, but also in boosting key skills such as confidence & communication skills, team building, decision making etc. which are now essential skills required in any career path.
Here’s what some of our affiliated teachers had to say;
“The Schools Affiliation Scheme has been absolutely fantastic for our students!”
“The really refreshing thing is that you listened to teachers suggestions and created a programme to best suit the needs of our drama students.”
“I know our students really enjoyed the workshop opportunities and learnt a great from the professionals employed to deliver them. “
“I, and some of the other Drama team members, also greatly benefited from being able to watch so many amazing shows at the Lyric. This not only helps us to improve our own creative practise but also give us plenty to think about when it comes to the theory side of the courses we deliver, particularly from a design aspect. “
