House of Imagination works with educators, artists and creative professionals to develop a creative approach to learning and researching experimental sites for pedagogical innovation. In our partnership work, our creative methodology, with everyone an artist, drives the ambition for artistic excellence. House of Imagination’s signature project ‘School Without Walls’, in partnership with the egg theatre Bath, manifests this approach. School Without Walls is a radical creative learning approach that challenges current orthodoxies and informs a shift in the culture of learning, placing children’s agency and engagement in the arts at the heart of the process. School Without Walls offers a creative enquiry-based approach to learning, reconceptualising the whole curriculum with the city as a campus for learning. The experience of co-designing the whole curriculum prioritises children’s agency in learning. In particular St Andrew’s Primary School’s Connected Curriculum engages children and educators in creative and reflective practice and a curriculum approach that places agency and dynamic relationships at the centre.
