Travelling Light’s School Offers
Travelling Light has an extensive Creative Learning programme, providing engaging activities where pupils can grow in confidence and creativity; as well as supporting their curriculum work.
We are committed to building long term relationships with schools and providing high quality projects at affordable prices.
Children and schools are at the heart of our programme and we do all we can to support them and ensure that creativity is still very much in the classroom.
"All pupils should have access to a quality arts education. Music, dance and drama build confidence and help children to live happier, more enriched lives, and discover the joy of expressing themselves."
