"I will recommend you to every drama teacher that I meet!"

Alex Weller, Subject Leader Drama,
Plume Academy

Slide

"[Splendid] are not only inspirational but give students access to some very difficult skills and texts which challenge and engage them in such a delightful way. Splendid are really serious about helping young people (and Old!) understand and engage with theatre using their own trademark creative style."

Dawn Elliot, Head of Drama,
Clitheroe Royal Grammar School

Slide

"The students learn a lot about theatre when they watch you. They learn about creating new material, how small sets and simple costumes can be used by actors to great effect and how to be bold in characterisation. Your Brechtian influences are also very useful as there are few opportunities to see some of these ideas in a practical context."

Cheri Whitehouse, Head of Drama and Theatre,
Hereford Sixth Form College

Pip Hockenhull, Director of Drama,
Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital

Slide

"I use Splendid every year for Year 13’s re-interpretation based on WJRC syllabus. The kids watch Woyzeck and then have a go at using Splendid’s conventions to create their own... thanks for existing, we love you."

Elaine Allen

Slide

"The workshop really supported the students in understanding 'doing' is better than 'talking', and how engaging with the audience is crucial."

Chrissie Carter, Head of Drama,
Aylesford School

Slide

"[The packs are] a fantastic help for those of us who teach GCSE and A Level Drama. The background and insight into the process is exactly the sort of information we need to enjoy the performance, and enhance our understanding. (You can quote me on that!)"

Jill Leicester

Slide

“Splendid are the best company that tour to schools! Students were able to see the standard of performance that could be achieved in their own studio space and get ideas to copy in their own devised work.”

Jessica Gill, Head of Drama,

Slide

"Inspiring, passionate, thoughtful, creative theatre at an affordable price IN OUR SCHOOL!"

Cath Pepper, Head of Drama,
Stuart Bathurst Catholic High School

Annette Harris, Head of Drama,

Stephanie Patchett-Byrne, Drama Teacher,

"The best, most creative theatre company working today."

Leo Cox, Head of Performance Faculty,
Ormiston Sudbury Academy

Sarah Waterman, Subject Area Manager for Performance & Film , Palmer's College

Lizzie Bloomfield, Head of Performing Arts,
