Arts Award Discover is an introductory award designed to encourage children to take part in arts activities, research artists and their work, and share their arts discoveries.

We can support Arts Award Discover Parts A and B through any of our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 school workshops. 

Part A: Discover

Pupils will see a range of different art forms on their visit to the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and will take part in practical activities.

Part B: Find Out

Pupils will find out about the life, works and times of William Shakespeare.

Complete Arts Award Discover at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

It is possible for your pupils to complete their Arts Award Discover qualification in full at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust through taking part in either The Play’s The Thing workshop or Best Will in the World. * Pupils will be provided with an Arts Award booklet to record their work throughout the day and certificates will be sent back to schools following moderation.  Please contact us to discuss this in further detail.

Please contact Sarah Fisher, Education Officer, on 01789 201848 or [email protected] to discuss how the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust can support your Arts Awards.
