Drama project from Half Moon Theatre helps children with the move to secondary school

Tower Bridge, Robert Browning and Snowsfields primary schools are all taking part in a drama project to help children adjust to the move to secondary school.

Called ‘Transitions’, the project from Half Moon Theatre has helped more than 450 children across seven schools since 2013 use improvisation, storytelling and role-play to share their fears and hopes for year seven.

Beccy Allen, Half Moon’s head of creative learning, said the scheme had been possible thanks to funding from organisations including London Bridge Building Communities Fund, Newcomen Collett Foundation, St Olave’s Foundation Fund, and United St Saviour’s Charity.

She said: “The transition from primary to secondary school can be a very emotional time for many young people and our project allows pupils a safe space in which to share their fears and explore their aspirations.

“Underneath some bravado, many young people are really quite terrified and have lots of emotions they need to explore in order to grow in confidence and feel positive about the new experiences ahead.”
