Schools and Colleges

Schools Partnership Scheme

Become a partner school and discover ways in which creativity can improve pupils’ happiness, confidence, achievement, aspiration and employability skills.

As a partner school you will enjoy a year-long programme of workshops, tours and discounted tickets, support with Artsmark and Arts Award and an opportunity to build a long term relationship with Hull Truck Theatre.

RSC/Hull Truck Theatre Associate Schools Programme

In conjunction with the Royal Shakespeare Company and St Mary’s College, the fundamental principles of this exciting programme are to work with schools and regional theatres to transform live theatre and Shakespeare in the classroom for young people. Elements of the programme include work experience opportunities for secondary age students, teacher training opportunities for staff, the chance for your school to gain Artsmark accreditation and the opportunity for students to take part in a playmaking festival with full production support from Hull Truck Theatre.


Our Engagement and Learning Team offer bespoke workshops, provide e-resources and host theatre tours alongside many of our Hull Truck Theatre productions. They are linked to the curriculum and provide an insight into our theatre making process. Workshops can take place before or after a show, either at the theatre or school.

Resource packs

Our resource packs have been designed to complement an educational visit to one of our productions. They are ideal for teachers looking to inspire and educate students through drama, providing practical materials to develop critical thinking and performance skills to aid creative learning. 

Inclusion Programme

As part of our Inclusion Programme we work weekly with pupils from Ganton Special School in Hull to increase communication, language and theatrical skills and explore personal stories. The same group of pupils work with us for a full academic year and enjoy coming to the theatre for workshops and meeting FOH and café bar staff. Participants develop their focus and confidence to share their work.
