We are a small, dedicated team with many years’ experience of working with teachers, artists, children and young people.   We are committed to delivering and brokering high quality cultural learning opportunities across art, drama, dance, media, written and spoken word in order to:

  • raise achievement in and through the arts
  • foster a sense of enjoyment and fulfilment in learning through the arts
  • increase the numbers of children and young people actively participating in arts and cultural activity
  • ensure the arts and cultural offer is high quality, dynamic and relevant

The ArtForms Arts Development offer for 2019/20 includes: 

Support and guidance

This can be accessed through our subject leader networks: the Primary Art Leader Network, the Primary Design and Technology Leader Network and the Primary Dance Leader Network.  All of the networks meet three times a year, have a themed focus and include national and local updates, including up to date research.  For information about the content of the network sessions, please see our Network Overview.

For schools who require bespoke support, we have a 2 day Support in the Arts package.   Please contact for further information about any aspect of our support and guidance. 

CPD and Training

We have a range of training and CPD courses, in and through the arts.   We can also deliver bespoke training in school as part of a staff meeting. 

Creative Projects

This is a menu of projects, where an artist works alongside pupils in school.  The projects are often linked to areas of the curriculum.
