Complicité Schools’ Network

An opportunity for secondary schools to get unprecedented access to leading theatre company Complicite by becoming members of the Complicite Schools’ Network.

Date: Any time that suits your school in the new academic year.

Venue: In school, Complicite’s office,various theatre in London.

In 2014, Complicite theatre company piloted a new project, the Complicite Schools’ Network (CSN) to engage with secondary schools in the local area. After three years it has proved to be a huge success and we are now looking for secondary schools in Camden to join the scheme for 2017-18.

As a member of the CSN, schools have access to: 

-      three in-school drama workshops from Complicité practitioners for GCSE, BTEC and/or A Level groups per year (Complicité's work features on these syllabi)

-      bespoke Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for all drama and performing arts staff

-      free production resource materials

-      Complicité careers advice, attending careers events etc. 

-       An In-Conversation event with Complicité’s Artistic Director Simon McBurney

-      possibility of work experience in the production office for students every summer

-      discounted or free tickets to productions, where possible. 

-      advance notice of post-show talks, workshops, demonstrations and other events

-      regular contact with Creative Learning staff and other members of the CSN: including a meeting of all members annually to discuss and develop the partnerships. 

Membership of the CSN will cost just over £1,800 per school, but John Lyons Charity is supporting the project, meaning that each school will only need to contribute £500 of this. (As a point of comparison – for non-members, one three-hour Complicité schools’ workshop costs £300.)

Membership is reviewed on an annual basis, and members will be able to opt out of the project at any point. 

Organisation will be very simple - schools are able to book workshops in whenever suits them, CPD will be scheduled to fit with teachers' timetables and all other aspects of the network will be flexible - to be taken up and adapted as fits each individual schools' needs.
