Sparc in Schools
Tonypandy Community College
Sparc partners our local school to Penygraig, Ysgol Nantgwyn. Ysgol Nantgwyn is the new home of our local cluster of primary schools and our main feeder secondary school. We support the school by offering drama workshops in school to the students, who can then filter into our mainstream programmes. We also support the primary children with their summer drama school productions. Students of the school also have access to our mentoring and support programme and often volunteer some of their time to Sparc events and performances.
Porth Community School
We have a wonderful relationship with staff and pupils in the drama department at the school. We run a number of drama projects in the school working with young people from years 8 – 10, with a focus on devising their own work and sharing to parents, pupils and staff.
Nurture group Tonyrefail
Over the last several years we have worked successfully in Tonyrefail School, creating strong relationships with the Nurture room. Some of our long standing members of Sparc came through the Nurture room and later joined our youth Theatres.
Hawthorn High School
We have a working relationship with the school and youth Workers. We offer taster sessions and events. Students have access to our mentoring and support sessions and student placements.
