Two short films have been created as resources for teachers and professionals. The full films can be found on the Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Board website

Children Missing Education (CME)


A short film commissioned by Rochdale Borough Council with Kingsway Park High School and M6 Theatre to raise awareness of children missing in education and child sexual exploitation.

Hate Crime

Short film: DON'T HATE ME

Pupils at St. Luke's Primary School worked alongside M6 Theatre Company to produce this short film about hate crime.

The film is aimed at children in Key Stage 2 and it is a fantastic resource for schools to use to raise discussions around hate crime. 


M6 works in partnership with schools to bring artists, children and teachers together on creative projects. We tour all of our productions into schools and also offer residencies and tailor-made projects.  We actively engage young people and teachers in our rigorous research, development and evaluation processes.

Our productions place children and young people’s wellbeing and empowerment at their centre, enhancing the pupils' understanding of themselves, their relationships with others and the world around them.

Our productions are fully supported by:

Production Linked Workshops

We offer a range of workshop models allowing pupils to explore the themes of the play and interact with the actors or specialist workers using dynamic, active learning techniques.

Production Resource Materials

We create imaginative and memorable resource materials to accompany productions.  These further enhance the creative and learning opportunities initiated by the performance and provide additional stimulating opportunities for young people to interact with the performance long after our visit.

If you would like to work with us, or have an idea you would like to discuss, please contact Gilly Baskeyfield

 “M6’s work continues to be of a high, thought provoking standard.  M6’s style and ideas will filter down into the pupils’ work for years to come"
