Children and two performers wearing jumpsuits are in what looks like a spaceship control room with lots of dials and switches on the walls.

About Immersive Learning Journeys

What happens when you embed immersive learning in primary education?

Immersive Learning Journeys is an ambitious programme that explores what happens in schools when we deliver a range of immersive learning projects over a period of three years. Working closely with school staff and communities, the programme is targeted at pupils who will most benefit. 

Each school has run multiple Punchdrunk Enrichment projects including The Lost Lending Library, A Curious QuestA Small Tale and The Vanishing Land. From Spring 2023 each school also received Route 158, a new immersive learning experience that has been developed specifically for the programme, which runs over two years.

The Schools

We are proud to be working with the following schools, all based in the Royal Borough of Greenwich:

  • Haimo Primary School
  • Heronsgate Primary School
  • James Wolfe Primary School
  • Linton Mead Primary School
  • Middle Park Primary School
  • Montbelle Primary School
  • Morden Mount Primary School
  • Wyborne Primary School

 Sharing what we discover

Our evaluation partners, i2 Media Research, are developing a bespoke model to measure and report on the impact of what we do. In the first year of the programme, we worked with i2 Media and the schools to co-create a toolkit of qualitative and quantitative methods and measures which look specifically at young people’s confidence, purpose, motivation to learn and self-efficacy. We’ll share what we discover at a later date.

Immersive Learning Journeys is supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, the Royal Borough of Greenwich school improvement service, and Peabody.
