What Teachers Say 2

Andrew Rogers | Therfield School

I have been bringing sixth form students from state comprehensives to the Festival since 1999 and can honestly say that every year the experience is unique and invaluable.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the learning the students engage in, on an almost 24-hour basis, genuinely helps them to improve the quality of their work, evidenced by them regularly exceeding expectations in both AS and A level. NSDF really teaches you about theatre – how to make it, watch it, talk about it, improve it. For what you get over the week, NSDF represents outstanding value for money.
