Rocktopus - School workshops that ROCK!
Write songs, create dance moves & boost well-being by turning PE skills and school values into music videos that ROCK!
Introducing Rocktopus! A real-life rock band for kids and their families, Rocktopus have two albums on international release and a whole load of exciting live shows, festivals and school workshops under their belts. They are in fact the world's ONLY school workshop rock band!
Fully qualified and experienced teachers by day, rock stars by night, Tom and Andy are touring schools up and down the country with their interactive, live music workshops.
A truly unique experience, these cross-curricular school workshops are cleverly designed to cover PE, music and literacy whilst supporting children’s mental and physical well-being.
These award winning workshops are listed in the DFE document 'Evidencing The Impact Of PE and Sports Premium' as an excellent use of funding for a whole school experience.

Schools have the choice of two workshops – Rock The Sport and School Values Rock – both are whole school experiences split into smaller sessions allowing each child to be involved in the creation of a song and music video. Ideal for even reluctant learners, these workshops are enjoyable, enriching and confidence building!
Rocktopus’ Rock The Sport School Workshop is designed to get the heart pumping and creative juices flowing with real life rock stars! This workshop is packed full of awesome actions, dance moves and PE skills that get the children up and moving to the songs they’ve written about PE during their session with Tom and Andy. The workshop ends with the big finale - the creation of a professional live music video using our professional green screen video equipment!
Rocktopus’ School Values Rock Workshop is an excellent way of getting the entire school to understand and appreciate their school’s values. With the creation of memorable songs and music videos, children will develop a passion and enthusiasm for their school’s values like never before.

The children had a fantastic time! All were very enthusiastic and participated fully in the active and fun sessions that made them think about the importance of exercise.
Miss Barratt, Teacher, Woodborough Primary
The children were at the centre of the process and they absolutely loved it. We now use the songs in our assemblies and the children have real pride in them because they created them. A brilliant experience!
David Cook, Headteacher, Luckington Primary
It’s an absolute no-brainer! It’s fun, it’s inclusive, it’s all the things that are fun about education rolled into one. We’ve had them in in twice now and have booked them to come again!
George Samios, Headteacher, Twerton Infants
What a truly unique day! Rocktopus combined the children’s 2 most favourite things – P.E and Music. The children and staff will struggle to experience anything as amazing as this again! Thank you!
