New – Video-based E-Learning Courses for School Staff.

With many years’ of experience in delivering accredited online keyboard skills training for school pupils, we are now pleased to announce the launch of our new online, video-based e-Learning courses for your staff.  These will provide key accredited training, some of which is regulatory, at a time and pace to fit around their work commitments – all at a tiny fraction of the price of conventional training.

There are three broad subject areas:-

Health & Safety – which includes Fire Safety, Food Safety, First Aid, Anti Harassment and Bullying, Behavioural Safety;

Business Skills – such as Delegation, Leadership, Equality, Diversity and Discrimination, Time Management;

Health & Social Care – including titles such as Safeguarding Children, Positive Handling in Schools; ‘Prevent’ Duty.

For a full list of courses and details of their content, click on the subject headings above.  You will find a preview of the first module of every course which you can view free of charge.

All our courses are of the highest quality, using video to illustrate and engage the learner.  Content is kept up to date constantly.  And each course includes a series of assessments which lead to a completion certificate, especially important where training is regulatory.

Please click here to make an enquiry and we’ll send you a price quotation.  For schools we offer flexible credit schemes with massive discounts against the individual prices shown on our website.

We have space in the diary for you… but not much!

“It was fantastic! So professional and carefully engineered to give the students what they need.”

There’s still time to book any one of our four great in-school shows for the current academic year. However, the diary is filling up so I recommend getting in touch with Helen, our tour administrator, ASAP.

The four productions are:



To discuss your requirements, and how we can help your students through one or more of our performances, either:

e-mail Helen in our office:

or visit our web site for more information:

Alternatively, you can call me for a chat about any aspect of Fred Theatre playing at your school on 01789 777612.

All we need to perform at your school is a space approximately 5m x 5m with room (of course) for the audience. If you have room, and feel it would be a good idea, you can also invite some parents along too, so that they can see what their sons and daughters are studying.

Our 90- or 60-minute adaptations are fresh and exciting re-tellings of the familiar and much-loved stories. Each is performed by a cast of six professional actors. We concentrate on the text and producing a faithful representation of the original—just a little shorter!

Get in touch today and let’s see if we can bring some great live theatre to your school soon.

Best wishes

Robert Ball
Artistic Director
Fred Theatre

PS: We have exciting plans for 2019-20 and I’ll be writing to you about these next month.
