For Special Schools

Discover Derby Theatre:  A Learning Theatre

Inspiration is our starting point for learning.  Our programme will ignite imaginations and inspire innovative new ways of working that we hope will have maximum impact on your student’s learning.

All of our workshop programmes can be tailored to work with schoolchildren with special needs.  Please contact our Learning team to talk about what might work best for your students.

Relaxed Performances

We invite you to join us for carefully adapted performances for people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects. Families and schools welcome.
