Our Programme

Our Why: Futureproofing success for all

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

We broker projects through our talented network of creative partners giving arts and creativity a bigger voice in education.

We help futureproof success for all by inspiring collaboration and problem solving and supporting children and young people to build resilience, agency and interpersonal skills through creative and cultural learning experiences and  projects.

In November 2021, the programme has completed a 3 year cycle funded by Esme Fairburn Foundation, Foundation for Future London and City Of London.

The end of November also saw the wind up of our Stratford Circus, that was our host for 2018-2021, and the move of the Creative Schools programme to our new amazing host Eastside Educational Trust.


Between January and July 2022, we will be designing the next phase of the Creative Schools programme (2022-2025) while still delivering some core elements of the programme.

Membership will be FREE during this period so get involved now.

Our core programme will include

  • subsidised school projects with some amazing cultural organisations
  • funded high-quality CPD opportunities with key partners
  • support with your Artsmark
  • subject support through networks

Creative Schools supports you to meet your school and wider curriculum needs through creative projects.

We support you design & commission a project around your needs and we subsidise the costs for you too!
