Managing Director

I am One Day’s Managing Director. I do a range of things for the company, my favourite being business development work with companies and local authorities who understand the value of creative education, and who wish to approach serious issues with fun and fresh ideas.

Before One Day, I ran a Theatre in Education Company for almost five years. Alongside Steph, I participated in the Sibiu International Theatre Festival in Romania twice, leading a series of theatre workshops with and for young deaf children. I also worked as a choreographer for a Stage School, and have led a series of workshops for the Percy Headley Foundation in the North-East. Along with my degree in Performance, this has all reinforced my desire to work with young people.

My biggest passion, and the reason for setting up One Day, is Creative Education. “Connecting children and learning with creativity and imagination” – we are like Ronseal… we do exactly what it says on the tin!

Another passion of mine is keeping children safe on the Internet. Raising awareness about the dangers online, highlighting what to do in certain situations and who to turn to for help is all so important at this time. It is good that we can get serious messages across to children, without forgetting the all-important ‘fun-factor’!

The best bit about working with One Day is hearing the fabulous feedback that comes from our schools. Knowing that children have excelled and learnt through creativity gives me the biggest buzz ever – especially hearing feedback about the shyer children who sometimes struggle in the classroom. At One Day we love to see healthy, happy and confident learners!

Artistic Director

I am Artistic Director of One Day and have the most rewarding job in the world – researching, developing and creating wonderful, imaginative and engaging workshops for children and young people.

Before One Day, I toured the UK as a Children’s Theatre Director delivering diverse workshops in Schools. Shortly after, I became Creative Director for the same Company. I have had fulfilling experiences with both the delivery and development of creative projects. From speaking with teachers, I am confident in knowing exactly what makes an excellent One Day workshop. My experience has given me a well-rounded approach to creating innovative, educational and lets not forget FUN projects.

One of my favourite and most exciting responsibilities is sourcing forward-thinking practitioners with a passion for working with children. Our auditionees go through a three-strand audition process, ensuring that we get the strongest, organised and most enthusiastic team possible!

I also have a secondary Health and Fitness string to my bow. As a qualified Personal Trainer, Exercise to Music and Zumba Instructor, I can deliver fantastic fitness classes, with a soul purpose to educate and promote the benefits of keeping a healthy and active lifestyle. I have had some incredible training, including a BA Hons in Performance from Northumbria University and professional dance training from Elmhurst School for Dance. I have also gained special educational needs experiences – working with orphaned children in a deaf school in Romania, creating performance-based work within Sibiu International Theatre Festival.

Working with One Day has given me the chance to not only share my passion for working with children but to also culminate all the experiences I have had, putting it towards creating exciting, fresh and engaging work for children, that will inspire young minds, and lay the foundations to well-rounded and fulfilling futures.

Hello, I'm Georgina and the go to person for all things financial here at One Day. Previously I worked in the banking sector which I left to pursue a degree in Performance Practice so my role at One Day allows me to utilise all my skill set and I love it. No two days are the same and I relish being part of a supportive and dedicated team.

I am absolutely passionate about the use of creativity to engage and inspire children and feel very proud to work in a company where this happens in schools countrywide every day.

My favourite workshops are the WW1 A-Z AND Toot Sweet. History was my favourite subject at school and I wish I could have experienced these workshops back then.

Hi! I’m Jess and I am the Admin and Finance Coordinator at One Day. I am here to ensure the facilitators have all the information they need to deliver our wonderful workshops! I also assist the lovely Georgina with financial matters which means my role day-to-day is extremely varied, which I love!

From Autumn 2017 we will be launching some brand new performances in primary schools across the UK and part of my job will be to coordinate the administrative side of this project. I am particularly excited about ‘Let’s Talk About It’ – an interactive performance exploring mental health, mindfulness and emotional wellbeing. Having previously been a primary school teacher, I feel this project in particular will have such a positive and lasting impact on children from all backgrounds who may have not had a lot of opportunity to consider the importance of looking after their own emotional wellbeing. I think it is invaluable that the children gain a better understanding of themselves and each other with techniques they can take with them throughout life.

Hi, I’m Charlotte and I’m the School Relationship Ambassador for Yorkshire and Humberside, West Midlands and the South East. I’ll be the one taking bookings in those areas and trying to match them to the perfect facilitator!

Before working with One Day I was a high school History teacher, so I love the idea of all of the History workshops, and I have a degree and post grad diploma in Classics and Mythology, so the Myths and Legends workshop is right up my street!

My role as a Creative Developer is to work alongside the Artistic Director to advance ongoing and creative new projects. It is a great way to keep creative and to be at the forefront of new ideas! For me, this a fantastic way to keep the passion of learning through creativity alive!

My favourite workshop has got to be 'The Stone Age OOGA OOGA!' The best way to learn about such a wonderful topic is to become Stone Age people ourselves - through drama. If I could go back to any time through history it would be the Stone Age! My favourite fact is – 'what did Stone Age people do to celebrate?' (Google it!!!!)

Hello everyone! My name is Carly and I'm a trainer and creative leader for our lovely Northern region. It's my job to assist with auditioning, training and mentoring our brilliant new workshop leaders. I also have the amazing job of helping to create new workshops and schemes to be delivered as future projects!

My favourite workshop is 'Into the Screen' in which the important message of e-safety is delivered through the medium of traditional fairy tales. It is brilliantly affective and makes the tricky subject of online safety, crystal clear and understandable for a very young audience. It teaches such important lessons yet it's brilliantly fun and engaging.

Hi, my name is Isaac Heywood and I am the director of Rock School UK. Since One Day Creative exploded onto the education scene, I have had the pleasure of working with them as their ‘musical’ partner company. Along with my team of RSUK tutors, we now deliver hundreds of music workshops in schools across the UK each year!

Our range of music workshops allow children of all ages (and teachers) to experiment with sounds and rhythms, try playing a host of authentic instruments, and learn to work as teams to create exciting performances at the end of each session. Being part of the One Day family is simply brilliant! Children are the future... and One Day Creative certainly embrace that sentiment.
