Making Creative Schools

Helping people reach their potential

We are one of the leading arts in education providers in West Lothian, working with teachers and their pupils to bring arts and creativity into schools.

By taking part in our activities young people develop creative technical and problem-solving skills, increase their social confidence, communication, team work, imagination and relationship skills and develop learning across other areas of the curriculum.

The passion of our practitioners is infectious, and they are very highly qualified in transferring skills to teachers and classes of all age groups and abilities. We are unique in our delivery, in how responsive we are to young people in the moment, and shape our work to ensure that everyone is able to be the best they can be on the day.
