Our Education projects provide opportunities for teachers and young people from Primary Schools through to Higher Education to ensure all young people can create, learn and experience theatre.

Workshops for schools

Primary Schools

We offer extensive opportunities for primary schools in our home borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and across West London. Information is sent directly to LBHF schools as these opportunities become available. If you are a Primary teacher within H&F, and wish to know more, email

Secondary Schools

We offer in person workshops around our Main House shows to enhance your students’ knowledge and understanding. We have run sessions to enhance the students understanding of a production’s design and focused sessions towards the GCSE’s Drama ‘Live Theatre Review’. These workshops can be delivered by our resident Assistant Director, a member of the creative team or a specialist practitioner.

We advertise these workshops via our free Teacher’s Network. To join this network please contact

Our current collaborations are listed below:

LSBU MA Creative Performance Practice

The Lyric works in partnership with London South Bank University to deliver two key modules: ‘Directing’ and ‘Working with Communities’.


This residency examines the directing process by inviting students to develop applied directing practice within an intensive studio/laboratory context. Tutors for this module are professional directors and will engage you in a range of approaches, styles and methods to directing. This residency culminates in a showcase at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre.

Working with Communities

This residency examines the process of working with communities to develop creative theatre projects in ‘real life’ scenarios. This module sees the students work intensively with industry professionals over a two-week period, covering different aspects of project development and delivery – including the issues, challenges and opportunities working with communities presents. The project culminates in a presentation plus the opportunity to join a facilitation team as an assistant on one of our Young People’s programmes in August.
