The Creative Writing through the Arts programme has previously delivered to 45 Primaries in South Essex. Research by Anglia Ruskin University demonstrated that the qualities and competence of children’s writing improved in a number of areas. 

The programme first ran between 2016-2019 and was led by five Teaching School Alliances, Royal Opera House Bridge and Anglia Ruskin University, with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Evidence and findings can be found below:

The Programme will be subsidised by the Royal Opera House Bridge.
