Simon is a creative practitioner who has been delivering a variety of creative arts projects in schools and local communities since 2009. He works with young people from Early Years up to Secondary, as well as working alongside teachers to embed creativity across their school.
He has worked for some of the best arts organisations across the UK devising and delivering projects and creative learning programmes to adults, families and young people. Some of these include A New Direction, Emergency Exit Arts, Freshwater Theatre, Half Moon Theatre, London Bubble and The Lyric Theatre.
He can also be seen teaching the children on Channel 4’s award winning documentary series ‘The Secret Life of 4 & 5 Year Olds’.
Simon is very passionate about engaging, creative learning. Drama and music are powerful tools in helping children take risks, play and discover. He believes all classrooms should put creativity at the heart of learning. With teachers and practitioners collaborating together, classrooms can become spaces that build creative worlds, inspire curiosity and create powerful mini learners.
