Aiming High is The Met’s specialist drama group for learning disabled and autistic young people. It is an accessible and fun workshop run by highly qualified practitioners.

We are delighted to be able to say that after a Summer of wonderful online sessions, Aiming High are ready to come back to their home inside The Met. There will be a few changes to ensure that we are keeping all of our members safe and secure on their return.

  • We will now be operating three different groups. These will fit into a broadly age-based structure but will also be based upon the needs of the individuals.
  • For the time being, we will not be accepting any new members. We know this might be disappointing for some, but while we are settling our groups back into the venue and making sure that everyone is kept safe, we will be keeping the doors closed on this group. We hope to be able to bring new members in after Christmas.
  • All members will pay in half-termly blocks using the payment links to the right of this page.
  • We have a bright, shiny new Risk Assessment that outlines everything that we are doing to keep you and our staff safe in this new world. You can read it for yourself here.

Our groups use physical activities and drama games to create a safe place for young people to express themselves, encourage them to become more independent and improve team working, communication skills and confidence.

Performing in a short show every term, the young people learn to have focus, a goal and enjoy a big achievement.
