Drama Champions is an up and running Action Research Project created by Nina Birch from Southwark, in partnership with London Drama and Southwark Theatres Education Partnership (STEP). The project aims to collect and collate evidence that standards of learning can be significantly enhanced and improved through the use of drama in the classroom.
The quality of provision must be outstanding therefore the teachers and educators involved in the project receive training and CPD from some of the most respected and forward thinking practitioners and theorists in the country.
Drama Champions started in Southwark in 2006 and has made a huge impact in the quality of drama being taught across the borough. The action research clearly demonstrated the relationship between the use of quality drama and improvement in pupils writing. (Links to other subjects – maths, history, geography etc. were made but the focus of the Action Research was primarily Literacy)
One of the Southwark Drama Champions became a Deputy Head in Croydon and in 2009 Croydon Drama Champions was initiated.
If you wish to start a Drama Champions programme in your Borough please email London Drama Office.
