Choices Theatre Tour


SPRING TOUR POSTPONED

SUN has taken the decision to postpone the Choices Theatre Tour due to take place between 23rd March 2020 to 3rd April 2020.

This decision has not been made lightly. In accordance with Government advice, we must take all necessary action to reduce the opportunities for infection to take place. Travel and gatherings of groups of individuals presents an increased risk. We are particularly concerned due to the nature of the Choices Theatre Tour which involves our Solomon Theatre Company colleagues having to attend multiple schools in succession.

Though we are hugely disappointed to delay these events, the wellbeing of students, staff and education professionals is of utmost importance.

Once there is further guidance around the national situation for covid-19, Solomon Theatre Company will contact you about plans for an alternative tour.

We apologise once again for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact SUN on sun@soton.ac.uk . This email account will be monitored regularly.

KEY MESSAGES:

  • Which subjects should I pick for BTEC or A level?
  • What career and learning pathway options are there for me?

Whether it is knowing their skills and options or understanding where the topics they enjoy could lead them, they also have to overcome pressure; from peers to stay in their group, from parents to follow a certain learning path or even pressure to conform to gender stereotypes.
