Thomas Schools Foundation Artist in Residence

Since Spring 2013 ACAVA has run an after school art club at Westbridge Primary School generously funded by Thomas’s Schools Foundation (TSF), an independent charity providing educational and extracurricular opportunities for children in the local communities of the four Thomas’s London Day Schools in Battersea, Clapham, Fulham and Kensington.

Through our support Westbridge Primary School has developed a commitment to strengthen it’s arts provision and is now working towards the national Arts Mark award.

In Autumn 2015 the school took on responsibility for the delivery of the After-School art club and together with ACAVA gained TSF funding to facilitate an Artist in Residence programme. Artist Jocelyn McGregor leads the programme, working alongside class teachers to build creative arts based learning into the curriculum teaching. Over the Autumn and Spring terms Jocelyn will work with every teacher and every child in the school, supporting arts skills development and preparing the school to attain the Arts Mark standard.
