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.

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 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.
