MAYFIELD THEATRE AND STUDIO
LET'S PERFORM AT MAYFIELD - 'ALWAYS START WITH WHY'
Now in its final stages of construction, and despite Covid-19's barriers, we are close to opening our unique new multi-purpose performance venue. The transformation of our smaller hall into this special learning and celebration environment for our children has been a delight to watch. Since September 2019, upon the arrival of our new headteacher, the vision has been clear. Value every achievement. Make every action purposeful. Make use of every learning space for the benefit of our children and the fulfilment of our teaching and learning offer. Our children will have the best. It will be unique to Mayfield and we will dare to do.
Under the leadership of our new appointed Site Manager, Mr Denis Askham, our new 'arena' has risen from nowhere in just six months. His 50 years+ in theatre and stage management aligned to his many practical skills mean we now have a space with a stage, sound and lighting system to rival any school. We want the best experience possible for our children and this is an example of it. If you are thinking about making an application for your child to attend Mayfield, then give us a call and we will take you on a tour giving you chance to see this and our many new innovative areas.
Our vision talks about enabling strong sustained platforms for speaking, listening and presentational skills aligned to personal confidence, this space is perfect for the rehearsing and performing of our new 'When I Grow Up...' curriculum opportunities. Whether it be dance studio, debating chamber, art gallery or showtime, we have the curriculum and resources to ensure our vision is brought to life. Our children need that opportunity to increase and share their vocabulary, to speak for different audiences and purposes, to gain the belief and confidence to talk to others and stand in the limelight. This is what our community needs and craves - we are delivering this.
Their future needs these skills to thrive and succeed. Their future can embrace every gift and talent. There should never be a ceiling on their opportunities.
A CURRICULUM ALIGNED TO VISION - ALIGNED TO USE OF RESOURCES AND SPACE - ALIGNED TO CHILDREN'S NEEDS & TALENTS - ALIGNED TO MEANINGFUL OUTCOMES
