Brunton Performing Arts Network

Brunton Performing Arts Network, run by the Brunton Theatre Trust (formerly known as East Lothian Youth Theatre Network), offers young people aged 5-18 the opportunity to participate in weekly drama, musical theatre and dance sessions across East Lothian.

The new term has just launched and we are keen to hear from anyone who would like to join us in September!

Joining a group can have a positive impact on health and wellbeing by building self-confidence, developing new skills, reducing social isolation and above all having FUN!

Our network of classes are designed to nurture creativity and provide a safe space for all, to explore their talents and learn the skills required to grow into a confident young performer.

Our classes currently take place in the following locations:

Port Seton

All of our classes are led by experienced and qualified industry professionals who have worked as freelance performance artists and have a wealth of knowledge to share with their groups. Brunton Theatre Trust also deliver classes for adults through our Brunton Players community theatre group.

To find out more about joining our network, please email: or alternatively you can call 0131 653 5245.

School Houses

School Houses

We are reintroducing SCHOOL HOUSES to Cockenzie Primary School.

At assemblies before the Summer holidays, our pupils and staff agreed that we would like to reintroduce school houses to our school.

The first Family Home Learning task of this session is to create names and logos for these 4 new houses. We can’t wait to see your ideas!

Over the next few months our pupils and staff will agree on the full purpose of our new school houses. Initial ideas have been suggested by our pupils and we will build on these together.

There will be P7 House Captains and Vice Captains elected shortly whose role will be to help to drive forward this change and gather ideas from across the school.
