The RSA Learning About Culture project has published stories of eight schools offering great arts education.

The RSA visited arts-rich schools across England to learn more about the strategies they have used to maintain a strong arts offer. For example:   

  • Giving the arts high status within their school
  • Prioritising dedicated arts spaces
  • Developing a range of partnerships to facilitate curricular and extra-curricular offer
  • Maintaining curriculum breadth at secondary school
  • Prioritising specialist staff
  • Timetabling to put the arts at the centre of school life
