Schools at Home

Help your pupils go further with our range of educational resources available for download. 

The packs may be used to support topic work. They can be explored by children with the help of their teachers, parents or other supervising grown-ups.

Arts Award Discover
Arts Award inspires young people to develop their interest and skills in art and leadership. It is governed by Trinity College London and delivered around the country by specially trained advisers, like our team at Wakefield Museums & Castles. Arts Award Discover is an introductory award, aimed at ages 5 and above, but is open to children and young people up to the age of 25. To achieve an Arts Award Discover, children and young people find out about artists or craftspeople, take part in arts activities and share what they do, learn and make.
