Who We Are

4th October 2020

As Creatives specialises in developing creative learning programmes and teaching resources for schools across the UK and beyond. Since 2008 we have actively engaged with over a million pupils, all over the world!

Our Story

As Creatives began life in 2008 as a group of six freelance creative practitioners who all felt that the sum of our parts gave us a far greater chance of fulfilling our shared aim to see Creative Learning at the heart of education.

With backgrounds across the Creative Industries, including classical acting, illustration, theatre directing and sculpture, we were all determined to keep space in our lives for our individual practices while finding time to work together to design a range of creative learning workshops and programmes, that we could offer to schools and the wider community. The success of this way of working led us very quickly to set up as a limited company and we have never looked back!

Our Vision

Our vision is to improve the future of children everywhere by enhancing learning experiences through activities that place creativity at the heart of curriculum learning. 

“I have had As Creatives coming into my school for many years and they are truly amazing! The quality of their work is second to none. They are my go to provider for any new topic we are teaching. Their bespoke performances/ workshops are always interactive, fun, engaging and cover all the National Curriculum objectives. The children can learn more in one morning with As Creatives than we can teach them in a term! “

Our Mission

Eleven years on our mission remains unchanged. We believe more than ever in the power of the arts to transform lives, fuelled by our first-hand experiences. We have expanded to work with a wider group of creative practitioners, all specialists in their fields, and we continue to work together both nationally and internationally to find new and exciting ways to engage children and young people in their learning. 

What We Do
