Schools: join our Quest projects!

We are currently selecting schools to participate in our 2012/2013 Quest projects.

We allow schools the opportunity to form partnerships with their local arts venue.  We look to work with schools who have a high proportion of pupil’s eligible for free school meals, with English as a foreign language or with special educational needs, and who do not currently have a relationship with the partner arts venue.

All Quest projects involve two visits to an arts venue, a teacher training day and in-school workshops by arts professionals.

If you think you are eligible for one of the below projects then please get in touch using the contact details below.
