Destination Success

Aim higher: an engaging, drama-based presentation to inspire young people to make post-16 choices to fulfil their potential.

The acting was superb, and the students engaged with the full performance. The actual show is a genius idea and pitched at exactly the right level… thank you very much for such a wonderful production that will certainly get our students to think about their future.”

We’re passionate about the power of learning and want to help young people realise their full potential. Since we started out in 2011, we have been successfully supporting outreach programmes with our innovative and engaging Destination Success performances, inspiring young people to explore the diversity of learning possibilities for post-16 choices and make the right choices for them.
Our multi-media performances blend interactive, digital characters (animated and film), video content, images and scenery, all woven together by a team of actors delivering a vibrant performance. Young people meet characters faced with the same kinds of pressures and realities that surround them, and they see them as they explore their choices, raise their aspirations, and aim higher.

The Presentation

Lasting 30 minutes, our performance, written for students in Years 8-10, aims to inspire young people to aim higher and achieve the best grades they can possibly get. It brings to life all the challenges, pressures and realities surrounding young people when it comes to thinking about their post-16 choices and staying committed to working towards their GCSEs. It’s a uniquely engaging experience designed to switch students on to continue learning, make more informed choices, and look forward to a successful destination in life.

The performance is pitch perfect, language and cultural reference appropriate, and in tune with the target audience. For school tours, it can be performed in up to two schools per day or in a central venue/ location for audiences of up to 250 students (back to back performances can be offered to larger year groups).

Building on the messages of the performance, we recommend that when people leave they are signposted to support mechanisms including their Careers Adviser, relevant websites and other useful resources. Also, because parents and carers have the biggest influence on the career choices of young people, we also offer performances which they can attend to learn all about post-16 choices and support their children. Our highly experienced project coordinators will ensure tour bookings are maximised and smoothly executed by coordinating the direct communication with schools and colleges through a range of different methods.

What Schools Say

Students and staff all found that the show was very engaging and had a big element of fun while still hitting home with the facts and truths behind what to do and how to go about things. The scenarios were very relatable to many students and therefore they found the show of great use as to potential avenues in the future
Thank you so much for coming to our school and delivering this performance, our students and staff enjoyed it and were talking about it for the rest of the day, some of our girls told me that they especially liked the fact that girls training and working in a male dominated industry was represented. I look forward to any productions you may have in future and wouldn't hesitate to book you again
Thank you for coming to the Academy and performing in front of what we would class as a ‘challenging’ group of students – it was fantastic, and the overwhelming majority of students loved it.
So full of energy and enthusiasm! Feedback from students and staff had been excellent! It\'s definitely got our year 10 thinking about their next steps!
A really engaging and informative performance! It was really relatable for our students and has made me feel more confident at giving advice on the topic.
They were fantastic, and students have commented that they really enjoyed it and tutors said they would like more similar PSHE sessions. Thanks again to Destination Success for a fantastic performance.
Very enjoyable and useful for our students. It makes a difference when they can engage with something rather than being talked at all the time.
Very humorous and delivered in a fun and light hearted way. All were engaged including me!
Lovely presentation for them to understand some key issues. It’s nice for them to hear it from different people, not just teachers!
