Open Minds works closely with schools in Rotherham, Yorkshire, nationally and internationally.  Our focus is the use of drama and performance to enhance the curriculum.  We are very flexible and have a huge range of practitioners to draw on with tremendous expertise.  Whatever your needs and whatever your funds, we can always find a way to help.  Our team includes highly experienced and qualified teachers and school leaders from all phases and key-stages, so we really do understand schools.

Our flagship project is the annual Shakespeare Festival.  You can find out more by clicking the link below.

We have also recently developed a curriculum tool called The Challenge Framework which brings together the best in pedagogy with the creativity of immersive narrative driving the curriculum.  If you are looking to inject some real creativity into your curriculum, we will have a package of training, delivery and support that is right for your school.  Again, find out more by clicking the link below.

And, of course, we have our wonderful Youth Theatre (Juniors and Seniors).  To find out more, again, follow the link.

  The Open Minds Shakespeare Festival will take place in Clifton Park in the last two weeks of June 2017 and in Doncaster CAST at the end of the first week of July.
   Our Youth Theatres take place on Thursday Evenings at the Open Minds Studio, catering for children and young people from age 7 to 18.  We also run hugely popular Summer Schools each year.
