In 2008, Tower Hamlets commissioned Half Moon to create a programme to help young people in the borough through the transition from primary to secondary school. The programme is still running and uses forum theatre to explore young people’s fears and aspirations about the move to secondary school.

The programme is structured into four sessions: gathering the young people’s fears about secondary school; presenting a forum theatre piece based on these fears; exploring the young people’s aspirations for secondary school and what they would like to leave behind them in primary school, starting secondary school with a clean slate.

You can find more information about the programme, which we are currently delivering, on the Half Moon website.
