Arc School is committed to embedding Creative Cultural Learning into all aspects of our teaching and learning.
Many Arc pupils lack cultural reference points having often been excluded from cultural opportunities in previous schools. We, as contributors to the Henley Review on Cultural Education consider culture in its widest forms to be an essential tool in the inspiration and successful re-engagement of learners.
We believe in the power of collaborative working to enhance teaching and learning and have forged strong links with a range of organisations at all levels as a result. We believe that in the best partnerships all parties must benefit and so we actively strive to share our knowledge and expertise, shaping practice as we do. Some of our partnership organizations include:
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Santander, Royal Shakespeare Company
