Schools and colleges
Our aim is to increase public understanding and support for arts and languages and communicate their significance for the wider community.
We have a dynamic programme of activities for secondary and further education students.
We invest in potential students, and work closely with schools across the north-west to host taster sessions, deliver lectures and provide school volunteering opportunities.
We are always happy to send our students and staff to talk to pupils about the value of studying subjects within arts, languages and cultures.
