Creative Recovery Programme

Half Moon, Tower Hamlets’ leading theatre company for young people, offers a Creative Recovery Programme to support children and young people returning to school after the disruption to their lives and their learning.

In the Summer and Autumn Terms (or during Summer Schools), Creative Recovery Programme sessions can be delivered in school, tailored to the needs of your pupils and funding you have available (working to your parameters regarding age focus, group sizes and number/length of sessions). Talk to us about using Catch-up Funding for a bespoke drama programme with a focus on the well-being of your pupils.
