Work begins on unique Performing Arts Centre

Published by Prior's Court School on Friday 24th of May 2024

Work has begun on a one-of-its-kind arts centre at Prior's Court to support autistic young people with complex needs to access the transformational power of the performing arts.

Our Let Me Shine Performing Arts Centre is beginning to take shape with works well underway to transform our existing PrincessTheatre building.

Once open in the 2024/25 school year, the unique centre will feature adapted facilities to support autistic young people with complex needs to access opportunities in music, dance and drama and the life-enriching benefits this provides.

Autistic individuals face many barriers to accessing the arts – from light and noise sensitivities to understanding of social rules – and one aim of the centre is to mimic theatre environments to prepare more young people to access arts venues in the community successfully.

This is in addition to having the opportunity day-to-day to express themselves creatively in a dedicated, bespoke space within the specialist learning and residential provision at Prior’s Court, where families can also attend performances.
