Working with Schools

schoolpicComedySportz offers a range of fully flexible improvisation-based workshops for schools, colleges and universities, catering to students of all ages and abilities. Based on the same principles we use in our shows, they promote confidence and self-expression alongside communication skills and teamwork. Students are encouraged to work together and listen to one another in a supportive, positive environment. ComedySportz can tailor these workshops to meet the requirements of the school syllabus and educational priorities while still being inspiring, energising and, above all, fun for all concerned.

High Schools

ComedySportz workshops offer distinct benefits to students at various points in their education. Year seven students may feel daunted and unsure of their new surroundings. Our workshops will help boost their confidence as well as help them to get to know their new classmates and express themselves around them. Year ten end eleven pupils can often benefit from a confidence boost in their drama and performance skills as well as a chance to relax and have fun in the face of pending examinations. Our workshops also offer a great way to engage students interest and enthusiasm after the summer holidays.

Our workshops our fully adaptable to meet your needs and the needs of your students. In the past we’ve provided workshops focusing on physical theatre skills, characterisation and other specific skills and principles. If you have a specific text to study then ComedySportz can help bring that to life and capture your students’ interest. We can also provide after school workshops in skills as diverse as acting for camera, directing skills and stand-up comedy.

Workshops can be a full day, a half day, a few hours or run as an after-school course depending on your needs. We can also put on a show for and involving your pupils to demonstrate what we do or just to entertain them. Whatever your needs, let us know and we can put something together for you at very competitive rates.

Primary Schools

Ideal for Key Stage 2, our workshops help lay the foundations for key skills in drama and performing arts. They’ll encourage self-expression and teamwork and can be tailored to include specific goals laid down by the school or curriculum. We’re also ideal for Play Days or end of term entertainment.

Colleges & Universities

For college and university students we can provide a more in-depth workshop centred around the theories and principles of improvisation. This includes a number of advanced exercises to help bring these theories to life as well as build on any previous improvisation experience. They’re still fun of course…
