Pitzhanger Manor House and Gallery 2018/19
This service is available for Academies, Maintained schools and Other schools and settings
The Manor House is a major cultural venue in the heart of Ealing. The Grade 1 listed manor house was designed and lived in by renowned regency architect Sir John Soane, while the adjoining contemporary art gallery houses exhibitions by leading UK and international artists.
Pitzhanger will offer an innovative and engaging programme of curriculum-linked workshops for pupils from EYFS - KS5 when it reopens in autumn 2018.
The programme will use the Manor House and the story of Soane as a catalyst for creative learning in art and design, English, maths, history (Pitzhanger is a case study for the OCR GCSE syllabus for history) and science. In all areas of learning, Pitzhanger will focus on real-world, experiential learning
Pitzhanger will be a strong advocate of art and design in schools, inspiring young people to choose arts-based subjects at GCSE and beyond. We will promote the wide range of careers in the arts sector through talks, artist-led workshops and work placements.
Outreach programme during refurbishment:
We are looking for teachers and young people who would be interested in joining our teachers’ panel and youth panel to help us develop our programme for next year.
