Our workshops provides a journey of discovery for teachers as well as pupils. Working alongside our specialist staff, teachers will see how the arts can be used to inspire and engage pupils.

Our workshops meets whole school outcomes and contribute to school improvement plans on multiple levels. We are one of a few organisations working with Arts Council England to develop ‘Artsmark’, a quality standard for schools who embed creativity across their curriculum.
