Welcome to Creative Schools

We tackle the real-world challenges faced by schools through innovative creative projects.

We broker projects through our broad network of partners and our network gives arts and culture a bigger voice in education.

Together we can make schools more creative.

Creative Schools consults with senior leaders to understand your challenges, School Improvement Plan, and aspirations for pupils, beyond the arts. We then find the right projects or intervention through our broad network of cultural partners. We give you all the options (with costings) in one go, saving you time and ensuring maximum impact and cost efficiency.

The programme also aims to foster lasting connections between the arts, culture and education in east London, through termly CPD for teachers, events, and annual Symposium.

We aim to keep things simple for schools as we know how busy you are.
