Our work with schools

We support London schools to deliver and embed high-quality arts and cultural provision across their curriculum and whole school community.

Our schools programme is for any London school or teacher aiming to inspire and enhance their students learning through creativity, the arts and culture.

As Arts Council England's 'Bridge' organisation for London, we support London schools through the process of achieving an Artsmark Award, the nationally recognised mark of excellence for schools delivering quality arts and cultural provision.

We deliver free CPD through our creative INSET programme and as an important part of our support for schools on their Artsmark journey. We develop networks for teachers, such as our SEND network and Cultural Learning Community, and run free networking opportunities, events and conferences. ANDtogether is our digital platform for schools to search and connect online with cultural organisations and opportunities.

We are proud of our AND Advocates, an exceptional group of teachers, who champion the value and importance of a curriculum enriched by creativity, the arts and culture.

Our next free annual conference will take place in October 2017.
