TaPS (Theatre Arts programme symposium)

We produce a series of unique 3-day workshops specifically for students of DP Theatre. Our e-mag (green icon above and right) tells you all you need to know about these remarkable events.

More and more teachers, each year, are realising the benefits of bringing a group of students to TaPS and experience the impact of these events on their students, upon returning to the classroom.

The 2015-2016 TaPS calendar, attached below, will give you more details of our forthcoming events.

Visiting our webpages will also give detailed information about each specific event – What’s on > TaPS.

If you are a teacher wishing to receive ISTA/IB training for DP Theatre please use the following link -
