SCHOOLS

Our award-winning Schools Programme connects artists with thousands of teachers, children and young people every year in a wide range of collaborative projects.


PRIMARY SCHOOLS

From 2017, teachers and pupils can participate in BAC Moving Museum workshops; embark on an interactive learning adventure to explore the stories from our collections including the Wandsworth borough collection and our historical building, Battersea Town Hall. 

All workshops are designed to directly support and enrich aspects of the History curriculums, including Local History topics, Geography and English curriculums for Key Stage 1 and 2. Workshops specifically designed for Key Stage 1 also support aspects of the Science curriculum. 

For more information on workshop topics, cost and booking, please contact movingmuseum@bac.org.uk or phone 020 7326 8299.

SECONDARY SCHOOLS

We regularly offer artist-led workshops in schools to accompany group visits to Battersea Arts Centre performances. Previous workshops have covered puppetry, physical theatre and animation.

Each year, hundreds of young people from Wandsworth and beyond participate in making theatre through our Homegrown programme for 12-29 year olds. We run Homegrown Taster Workshops in schools, bringing professional theatre-makers and young people together to explore a range of art forms, including theatre, music, beatbox and dance. We can tailor workshops to different year groups as either one-offs or longer experiences. For more information please email homegrown@bac.org.uk.
