Creativity Collaboratives

We are excited to share with you our Year 2 Report from the Penryn Partnership Creativity Collaboratives project which can now be downloaded here: Creativity Collaboratives - Inspiring Teaching and Learning - Penryn College (penryn-college.cornwall.sch.uk) This includes 13 Action Research reports from teachers across primary and secondary classrooms. 


Creativity Collaboratives is an England-wide initiative, building a network of schools that will test a range of innovative approaches to teaching for creativity.  It is funded by Arts Council England and supported by the Freelands Foundation and began in October 2021.  The Penryn Partnership is one of eight national pilots, led by Penryn College with eight local primary schools and research partner, the School of Education at the University of Exeter.   


The Penryn Partnership is focused on exploring how teaching creativity across the curriculum leads to young people who are better prepared for their future in a changing workforce.  During year 2 we explored approaches to teaching and learning across the partnership resulting in 13 Action Research reports written by teachers from EYFS to KS4.
