"It is remarkable that each year you give us something special both in terms of the drama performances but also in the workshops. The responses of the pupils throughout the day and their comments to us the following week indicate just how much they enjoyed and appreciated it"

                         Head of PSHE Haberdashers Aske's School

We invented a 'fly-on-the-wall' documentary called 'Beyond the Surface' and created a live show and a film around it. The episode "Changing Britain" is fast paced, involving and informing as we flick between two young people watching the show, the secretly recorded people in the show and a range of other programmes, adverts and media influences.
The format is brilliant for involving everyone as it creates scope to look at all the issues connected to puberty and the many changes that can take place in the lead up to the teenage years.
The film project for years 5 & 6 includes a full length film, teaching resources,  optional live or digital workshops by our team and staff training.
The live shows and workshops are adapted to be age appropriate and relevant to each year group.
