“This is about helping children navigate this world, they have got all sorts of rights that we have signed up to in the physical world. It is now time to sign up to those in the digital world,” Anne Longfield. Children’s Commissioner for England
It can be an extremely difficult task for schools to find PSHE projects and activities that are exciting, engaging and memorable, however that is exactly what is needed to create a lasting impact on their relationships, experiences and choices.
According to OFSTED “In 80% of primary and secondary schools, outside speakers made a valuable contribution by bringing a wide range of expertise and life experiences to the PSHE education programme.”
Tip of the Iceberg theatre company have been designing and delivering PSHE performances and workshops for the last 15 years and are completely funded by educational establishments. It’s taken over 6 years of research and development across the country with over 200,000 pupils to create “Beyond the Surface”. A series of shows based on a “fly on the wall” TV documentary format that is familiar to pupils and gives them a springboard to explore how the media, internet and real life all intertwine. The follow up workshops allow students to relate themselves to the issues and are involving, inspiring and informing. All their projects focus on empowering young people and improving mental health and well-being.
This summer term, Tip of the Iceberg Theatre Company are touring two projects, “Bullied Britain” and “Connected Britain”. There is a range of options from 1 performance for up to 120 pupils (years 5 and 6) to full day packages including a range of shows and workshops for years 1 to 6. The projects can be purely PSHE focused or can also include drama sessions and presentations by pupils at the end of the day.
Every school and their students are different which is why they offer bespoke packages to create the highest impact and ensure all needs are met. To read a little more about the projects take a look on the website:

“Just wanted to say the delivery from Tip of the Iceberg yesterday was fantastic. The workshops and the performances really helped consolidate many of the messages we try to give our students and the delivery was passionate and pertinent. I know the young people will have taken a great deal from it.. and the acting team were great to work with.
Thanks so much for being so accommodating- a delight to work with and I will be recommending you to my PSHE colleagues” C Naylor. Brighouse School Yorkshire
“I meant to email to say how much everyone enjoyed the show and to say how great your team were. Everyone loved it so much that we want to book again for next year.” Mary Scott. Parkfield School, Taunton
