home>about me

Peter Kennedy is a drama in education specialist with eighteen years experience. He is Stockport’s drama consultant as well as a freelance drama practitioner and inset course leader.


“The focus of my work is on providing pupils with positive drama experiences and providing teachers with practical ideas that they can use in their classroom.  This includes how to use drama to teach across the curriculum as well as the teaching of drama as a discrete, aesthetic subject.”



…as Head of Drama at The Kingsway School (Stockport), Peter led a thriving drama department for ten years inspiring and motivating pupils across a wide ability range to achieve their potential in drama. All pupils experienced a varied and challenging key stage three drama curriculum while at key stage four drama was a very popular and successful GCSE option. Peter combined this with an extensive range of extra curricular activities including school productions, drama clubs, theatre visits and performance opportunities.



…Peter works as the Drama Adviser for Stockport LA supporting the work of the secondary drama departments as well as co-ordinating a network of drama teachers.  He is as an Associate Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University supporting the training and development of specialist secondary drama teachers as well as extending the teaching repertoire of trainee primary school teachers.


In addition, Peter is the drama tutor for Northern Ballet School (Manchester) providing specialist drama workshops to support the performance training of the next generation of ballerinas and professional dancers.



…Peter has worked extensively on the Chrysalis project in Wakefield meeting the challenges of the creative curriculum agenda as well as on the P.A.D. (Primary Arts Development) project in Cheshire, inspiring pupils and teachers alike through drama as a methodology to raise attainment.
