Let JK Theatre Arts introduce your children and students to the world of theatre, whatever their age or ability. We aim to encourage and nurture through imaginative play and inclusive creative learning, building their theatre skill set and stimulating self expression and communication skills. We aim to enrich children's school experience through art and theatre by inviting them to positively express and interact.

We currently run extra curricular drama clubs at primary and secondary schools in Mid Sussex. If you are interested in having a JK Drama Club at your school please contact us.

JK Theatre Arts school clubs are designed for both primary and secondary students running during term time either during the school day, lunchtime or after school. The sessions are designed for groups of up to sixteen students with our performing arts specialist working unassisted. Alternatively, if the school provides an assistant, the group can include up to thirty two students.

We are also able to work with the class teacher or subject to provide a club suited to the specific needs and requirements of the educational facility.

The club sessions are designed individually by the JK teaching team to suit your school’s specific needs.

  • Available for Key Stage 1-4
  • Require minimum organisation or commitment by the school/teachers
  • Professionally trained and DBS checked arts specialists

  • JK Theatre Arts have supported and led a range of productions and activities at Meridian Community Primary School. They provided a full week of workshops based around The Lion King and catered for children from Reception to Year 6. The children enjoyed every moment and realised their own potential through this provision. JK Theatre Arts took on a consultancy role, by providing the teachers and students ideas and musical theatre training for a production of Grease and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with both proving to be fantastically ambitious productions.

  • JK Theatre Arts has really empowered our students and given them a whole toolbox of skills to use in performance. They have thrived both personally, socially and artistically. They are accomplished performers who enjoy their hour with JK Theatre Arts immensely. Thank you JK!

  • The lunchtime drama clubs offer a wonderful opportunity for pupils to develop their drama skills in a safe and secure environment . For many years now I have been impressed by the way JK creates a warm and fun platform for all to flourish and the progress pupils have made in this time in these sessions is astounding. Confidence and enjoyment are key - and this is what JK nurture so well- indeed, I know for many pupils the lunchtime drama club is one of , if not the, highlight of their week!
