What Is Creative Learning?


Creative Learning uses the arts to develop creativity, unlock potential, explore diversity and celebrate identity.

Schools: Spotlight on Skills


In the autumn of 2020, the New Wolsey Theatre, its staff, resources, auditorium, rehearsal room and participation space will all be available for schools to take part in a new and exciting active learning project with specific curriculum based content.

Working with professionals from the theatre, young people will reconnect with learning and the National Curriculum; discover career pathways in the creative industries; develop essential life skills, and use their creativity to reflect upon their experience of lockdown, all in a safe, fun, supportive environment that is Covid-19 secure.

As one of the arts organisations that has worked with the Paul Hamlyn Foundation on their Teacher Development programme, we have been a part of a wide-ranging project that has successfully evidenced that young people’s learning can be dramatically enhanced by a practical, art-based approach to animating elements of the National Curriculum.

An ‘active learning’ approach has been shown to be especially effective at eroding disadvantage and supporting young people who might not have thrived in a conventional school environment to reach their potential.

Regardless of where your school is in its delivery plan for Science, Computing or Mental Wellbeing, our programme could recap, introduce or support the teaching of these elements of the National Curriculum.

Click here to find out more about this exciting new offer.

We understand this is a period of uncertainty for the education sector, and we’d be happy to have a conversation about how we can be flexible with this work to engage with your school. Please contact either:
