Schoolsworks is a multi-academy trust in West Sussex. Our aim is to create small hubs of schools which work closely together to collaborate, share best practice and improve outcomes for children.



Drama and Productions

 Rock challenge

The four years prior to Covid we took part in 'The Rock Challenge®' which was introduced to the United Kingdom in 1996 by Hampshire Constabulary with the aim to help young people enjoy school and live pro-active and positive lifestyles free of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. 

Schools compete in major theatre venues across the United Kingdom. They spend the day rehearsing in front of their peers and supporting o­ne another before performing their 5-8 minute dance, drama and design piece to a live audience of friends, family, VIP guests and a panel of judges. Marked in three criteria areas- production, design and performance- schools are presented o­n stage at the end of the evening show with Awards of Excellence in a variety of areas. The top placing teams are also announced and qualify through to a regional final where they are invited to compete with other winners from across the country.

Over the four years we won our area competition and went through to the final stage. On one of those years we placed fifth against other primary schools.

Our last dance was called 'Believe'  - it was about the power of reading.
