  • What has creativity ever done for us?

    Published 01/03/17, by Natalie Robinson

    As we all know too well, we live in a hard-nosed age where the school curriculum has to deliver value for money.  Within the curriculum, creative subjects can offer low hanging fruit to hard-pressed headteachers looking to balance budgets and to deliver on the government's educational agenda.
