In-school, extra-curricular:

We deliver extra-curricular courses for Able, Gifted and Talented young students with an aptitude for the arts in after school workshops, weekend workshops, and during collapsed timetable opportunities. These support both primary and secondary levels of education and can include accreditation with Trinity College London to gain Discover and Explore Certification, as well as Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards for schools and Learning Communities.

Out of school Residential Courses:

For over twenty years we have been running art and design courses for Gifted and Talented students alongside artists in residence. We use a centrally located venue on Dartmoor called Pixies Holt to continue the legacy of our work with Babcock Learning and Development Partnership to provide enrichment opportunities to the regions most able young artists across the South West. This information goes out directly to schools, and teachers recommend and endorse students directly onto the courses. We also publish this course information on our website as a reference for those interested in learning more about our arts education.
