Scary Little Girls have been using drama in schools to tackle vital issues in a dynamic, creative and engaging way since 2005.

Having received funding from The Maggie Black Trust to launch their first programme of workshops looking at inclusion and diversity, they were quickly recruited to the pioneering London scheme ASSP (Agencies Supporting Schools Programme).

As part of this elite group of practitioners, SLG developed bespoke workshops for primary and secondary aged students – communicating with the whole school community on issues such as Anti Bullying, Positive Behaviour, Assertiveness, Non Violent Conflict Resolution, Sexual Education and Healthy Relationships, Nutrition and Human Rights – for over ten years

We combine drama practices such as forum and verbatim theatre exercises with a cutting edge understanding of current best practice in delivering work about sexuality, race and gender.

We are able to use literature or plays as the base of the work if this is desired and as well as working with students we are adapt at running sessions for teachers, parents and staff.

We can run one off sessions or develop a programme of work with your school that lasts a whole term.

Our work is created bespoke to your students after a consultation process with you ensuring maximum benefits for all who take part.

We also have several speakers available to provide assemblies and training on the politics of women’s rights, gender and diversity, including Rebecca Mordan who founded SLG and is its Artistic Director.

Rebecca is a regular talking head on Sky News and BBC radio and has also appeared on The Big Questions, Woman’s Hour and Radio 5.

Just get in touch to begin your students’ journeys into even greater inclusion, well being, enrichment and confidence.

SLG have run workshops in our school on a regular basis. Some feedback from the last session SLG ran include these comments:

“It was fun and we got to give our own opinions”

“They listened to us”

“We could express ourselves in a safe area”.

“The work you are doing for schools is very original and exciting. It supports the curriculum by bringing Shakespeare alive for the children. I was also please at how the way you develop the work with the children encourages citizenship as well as a love of learning.”

“The Scary Little Girls were able to encourage thought provoking comments and reflections in a positive, fun and non-judgemental way. It was also a positive learning experience for the teachers who were given activities and ideas that they can certainly utilise again. We would very much welcome the opportunity to work with them again.”

Comments from teachers

“I liked how you performed to us and how the action took place. I would love for you to come again and do some more acting with us.”

“I really enjoyed the story and acting in it. … Everyone was great. I hope to do some more acting soon.”

“I felt like a real actor and I would love to do some more acting so I can be a real actor when I am older. I learnt about making up after an argument and will try this if I have an argument.”
