Grace Dear Youth Theatre - Year 7 and Year 8

Posted by: Ben Ryan on 04-10-2019

Anstee Bridge are delighted to be helping Bounce launch the Grace Dear Youth theatre 

This winter, we are delighted to be launching the Grace Dear Youth Theatre on behalf of the Grace Dear Trust.

The youth theatre is open to children and young people in Year 7 and 8. Our intention is to provide an environment that promotes gratitude, respect, acceptance, care and empathy.  It will be held in Heatham House every Thursday 4.00-6pm. Free.

Weekly workshops will combine games, chat and an opportunity to work towards making their own original piece of theatre. 

Places will be given to children and young people who are identified as struggling with anxiety. This may inhibit their ability to cope with SATs and the transition from primary to secondary. 

The group will combine an opportunity for them to participate in a range of theatre arts to gain new skills to develop emotional resilience. Alongside this, there will be mental health champions on site who can provide additional time and space for talking. 

Hope Dear explains "We are so excited to be partnering with Bounce to create the Grace Dear Youth Theatre. Grace would be dancing in the clouds right now. If we can help support one young person through this programme then that’s one less young person feeling alone."

If you would like to refer a young person to the project please email one of the following contacts:

Head of Year 8 Mr Redfearn - lredfearn@hollyfield.kingston.sch.uk
