Eastside Extended Projects

Designed to help your students improve key personal and creative skills, whilst deepening their engagement with the curriculum and supporting your school with key School Improvement Goals.

 

Working with one of Eastside’s expert facilitators on a weekly basis, your class will develop a piece of work throughout a half term, or full term, that they can showcase to the school community and beyond.

 

If you prefer, our Extended Projects can also be offered as a full day off-timetable instead of a weekly workshop.

 

Many schools use our extended projects as an opportunity to gain an Arts Award.
