Morda Church of England Primary School is one of seven schools to be awarded money from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation's teacher development fund.
It will allow staff to explore arts-based approaches to learning in the primary sector.
Helen Chapman, deputy head teacher and project leader, said: "This is such an exciting venture. We will be working with two of the best drama-in-education practitioners in the world, Luke Abbott and Tim Taylor.
"I have already been trained in this method of teaching and I have delighted with the level of engagement and excitement about working in this way. The children love being in role and the learning is so much more powerful for them."
