Schools

Southbank Centre, home to Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall, National Poetry Library and Purcell Room, invites schools to get involved through creative learning projects, exploratory days, year-round workshops and events for teachers. 

We offer a year-round programme of activities for primary and secondary schools to inspire a love of the arts and support learning across the curriculum.

Schools are always welcome on at Southbank Centre, and we hope that you will visit us this academic year. Whether you’re attending a schools event, having a picnic with your class on site, or using our digital resources in the classroom, the schools team can support you. We’ll be happy to help with any questions, just get in touch with us.
