We work closely with local schools supporting KS1 – KS5 pupils to develop creative thinking and practical skills, build confidence, enable personal progression and a growth mindset.

If you are not able to visit with your school, you can still attend online events, explore digital resources and follow our blog, wherever you are.

We encourage and facilitate cross-curricular and extra-curricular learning, bringing creativity to EBacc subjects and STEM learning.

We are a partner in the Hastings and Rother Arts Education Network (HRAEN), and work with the Teaching Alliance, Cultural Education Partnership and Artswork – part of the national network of ACE funded Bridge organisations, to ensure children and young people can have access to great arts and cultural opportunities.

Guided tours

When open, we lead tours of the building to explore its origins, design and influence, and tours of the exhibitions to unravel some of the ideas and processes found in the galleries. To find our more please get in touch: Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com

If you are planning an independent visit please let us know in advance to avoid overcrowding in the galleries.

Creative workshops and careers events

We coordinate workshops that encourage experimentation and introduce creative skills and techniques in the De La Warr Pavilion Studio or in your classroom. To find our more please get in touch: Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com

Work experience placements

When open, we host two work experience placements per term for Yr 10 + students. The placements give students the opportunity to develop and apply knowledge of cultural institutions and employability skills.

We are currently looking at developing online placements. Unfortunately, we are not taking any more applications for 2021 but please get in touch at the start of the academic year by emailing Dee.Haughney@dlwp.com

We support students to critically engage with our exhibitions, and offer advice on making applications to Further and Higher Education Institutions.
