Schools and Colleges

We offer bespoke workshops to primary and secondary schools as well as universities, youth clubs, theatre groups and drama societies.

Our workshops are tailored to the needs of the participants and can be designed to complement or build on an existing curriculum or just to the interests of the group. Our workshops usually focus on devising methods, physical theatre and ensemble theatre making. We can also offer workshops that explore the themes of our productions to accompany a theatre visit. We can work with a small group, an entire year group, or even a whole school. Our workshops are designed after careful consideration of the aims and needs of the group.


Get in touch if you'd like to discuss a possible workshop in more detail.

Made in collaboration with West Sussex Council this pack is designed to increase understanding of young carers and inform the development of support networks across the school community with staff and pupils. Activities encourage each school to find their own solutions to supporting young carers – what works best in their school for their pupils.


This resource includes:


Information about young carers, how to identify them and provide support in school.


Guidance notes on how to use this learning resource with the film.


Ideas for awareness raising activities to do with staff in 10 minutes, 30 minutes and 60 minutes.


Activity/Lesson plans with relevant resources for use with staff and pupils, and links to further sources of information.


Each activity/lesson plan includes a list of materials you will need in addition to the materials provided in this resource. This may include a whiteboard, flipchart stand/paper/pens, iPads, pens and paper for participants to use


The film will require relevant equipment to show in assembly and in the classroom.


The materials are designed to be flexible so you can adapt them to your needs.

What it's like having us in your school

“Tangled Feet’s energy, dedication and ideas have allowed our students to experience something very special, from the audience members who were tents and huge ‘flocks’ of people gliding across the playground to the Year 12s and 13s who got to perform alongside professionals. We have all gained so much”- Zoe Shepherd, Head of Drama, Beaumont School -
“What I found very effective about the way the company worked was their inclusive approach and their expectations of the students to work as professional alongside the practitioners. The practitioners were unique in their individual approach to different groups of students and being involved in the collaborative process which resulted in stimulating and imaginative work.”- Sophie Leader, Head of Drama, Wren Academy -

Belongings – Rowan Tree Dramatherapy

by Bryony Brooker & Justine Staley   An idea   First of all, I want to say I love my job and after working with Tangled Feet, I love my job with rejuvenated enthusiasm, a bag full of shiny tools, an insurmountable pride in our young co-creator team, and new possibilities of what we can bring to our work.   Just as a bit of background, Justine and I are directors of Rowan Tree Dramatherapy. Founded in 2013 as a Community Interest Company, we provide a Dramatherapy Service across Kent where we are committed and dedicated to working within the community to ensure Dramatherapy is both accessible and useful. We work extensively with young people, many of whom who do not live with their birth parents. Thanks to Children in Need, we have been able to offer fully funded group therapy each year for the past seven years to Children in Care. With each group, we create a space together that offers the potential to experience a sense of belonging that they have agency over moulding, shaping, and making their own. They have a voice, they are heard, and their feelings and emotions are validated. However, outside the therapy room, all too often these young people have had no choice and no voice, in what has happened in their past, and sometimes in their present, we always strive to support agency and wondered how could their voices become tangible?   Together, we tentatively considered how a piece of therapeutic theatre could be created and how this might look. We knew we did not have the knowledge or skill set to create the vision we had (it had to be spot on) and knew that it would take a theatre company that had great integrity and experience to pull this idea off.
