The National Theatre

Program support

The grant supports the development of a dedicated National Theatre Digital Schools Channel, creating a resource that will make the work of the National Theatre available in classrooms in the UK and ultimately worldwide. The National Theatre will offer a selection of full productions and complementary learning resources to every school in the UK, to play in the classrooms for free, in consultation with teachers, supporting the national curriculum. In addition, they will open up NT’s archive to students studying Drama and English and link schools remotely to the New Learning Centre.

The National Theatre’s mission is to stage an eclectic mix of new plays and classics from the world repertoire. They present artistic programs and run an important education program.
