Lucy Williams, The Charter School - STEP is well run and has developed and flourished in the last few years I have been involved and is an absolutely and utterly invaluable resource for schools in Southwark.
Richard Prendergast, St Michael and All Angels Academy (STEP Creative and Media Work Experience Programme 2010) I am truly amazed at the level of work the students have achieved. This is an amazing opportunity for the young people and they have excelled themselves!
Rebecca Benjamins, Bessemer Grange Primary School - STEP provides schools with valuable contacts in the creative world. The workshops, performances and opportunities STEP provides are valuable for the teachers and children. The children love the activities offered by STEP: they allow them to freely express themselves in numerous ways. STEP has enabled smaller theatres to work more closely with schools building a network of creativity in the community.
Southwark Primary Teacher (STEP Out! 2010) - A very good project! It gave the children a strong sense of team work and working cooperatively with each other, which fed back into the classroom, their work and their communication and sociability with each other. It instilled in the children a sense of pride and self confidence that many of them lacked.
Southwark Secondary School Teacher (STEP Festival 2009) The STEP Festival has become a key annual event for our school. The young people are hungry for this kind of cultural enrichment and it really does change their lives.
Southwark Secondary School Teacher (STEP Festival 2009) I feel very lucky to work in Southwark where there is such support for the performing arts…and I think the Festival is a fantastic way of bringing students from all over Southwark to work with some great organisations.
