School Without Walls (SWW) is an enquiry based model of experiential and creative learning that transforms both the curriculum and the learning culture in schools. Transposing ‘school’ to an arts environment, invites teachers and children to interrogate and reshape teaching and learning in and through the arts. Artists and mentors from 5x5x5=creativity, egg theatre, Mentoring Plus and Bath Festivals will learn alongside teachers and children to pioneer approaches to embedding learning in and through the arts in the primary curriculum. It will expand the innovative methodologies of SWW to build a model together with 10 schools that could be replicated nationally.
