About Creativity Collaboratives

In October 2021, Arts Council England announced funding of £2,780,000 to build a network of schools that will test a range of innovative approaches to teaching for creativity. The Penryn Partnership was selected as one of the eight national pilots, led by Penryn College.

The funding has been generously supported by Freelands Foundation and has been granted to eight lead schools, who each work with a network of at least a further eight schools. The networks trial varied methods of teaching that help children and young people develop their creative capabilities and evaluate their effectiveness. The pilot will run until July 2024, testing out teaching approaches and curriculum development which can then be applied more widely throughout the education system.
