Kick Arts Programme

Kick Arts logoKick Arts is an innovative flexi-school model for 11-16 year olds who are school refusers or at risk of exclusion. It is a 15 week programme, which we are delivering in partnership with OYAP Trust. The programme is funded by a Young Roots grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The first programme will run from November 2016 to March 2017. The second programme will run in autumn 2017.

The programme uses the creativity and the irresistible qualities of the arts to improve young people’s attitudes to and relationships with learning. We invite artists educators with special talent and experience of working with disengaged young people to lead and inspire learning through a variety of art forms, from young slam poets, to photographers, film makers, musicians, makers and visual arts. Find out more
