Tudor has a well-established outreach and enrichment programme working with local state schools through the Independent/State School Partnership (ISSP). Over the past year, Tudor worked with 18 state schools, involving over 500 state school pupils in its partnership and giving 550 hours of staff time (ISC annual Census 2020).
The programme includes activities in a wide range of areas including modern foreign languages, science, geography, drama, music, art and sport. These events ensure that the wider community benefits from our facilities and expertise.
Since 2016 Tudor has worked in partnership with William Morris Primary School (WMPS) in Bretch Hill, Banbury providing support to the school in a number of ways – strategically, contributing to teaching and learning, and purchasing essential and non-essential items that fall outside WMPS’s funding provision. WMPS pupils attend all our outreach events.
Tudor teachers deliver specialist teaching in dance, drama, music, art, French and sport as part of their teaching allocation. Sixth Form student volunteers also work with the children assisting with written work and hearing them read.
This partnership, together with our broader outreach work, is one of many ways that Tudor lives out the school’s motto.
It was so fun to learn in a different way by spending the whole day in a real theatre practising for our play. Thank you for inviting us - it was amazing! 'Play in a Day' attendee
