Theatre in Residence Project 2022-23
Created by The Lyceum’s Creative Learning team, the Theatre in Residence Project has evolved from our highly successful Creative Pathways Programme, an innovative, interdisciplinary learning programme for primary-age children that has been delivered in Edinburgh schools since 2012.
After a successful pilot project started in 2021, and thanks to generous funding from Baillie Gifford and the Ellem Foundation, we are now inviting applications from Primary Schools based in Edinburgh to be part of the next intake of two schools.
The Residency will see a drama artist placed in a primary school up to two days per week for a full academic year to:
- support the development of teachers’ skills in using drama and expressive arts practices in classroom settings
- develop an archive of drama-based teaching resources linked to the Curriculum for Excellence
- increase drama provision in the school through the delivery of practical sessions with pupils
There is no cost to schools to take part.

Application Forms should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 29th March 2022.
