Key Stage Three Workshops

Welcome to Ignite Lights' home for all things Secondary! Creative education is often dismissed as a primary school approach, but young people of secondary age have just as much to gain from an alternative approach to learning. Whether you’re looking for a sensory writing experience from a playwright who has worked at a nationally acclaimed producing theatre, or a PSHCE linked session frankly exploring disability and prejudice from the perspective of a person with disabilities, or anything in-between, Ignite Lights can provide a personalised experience to suit your needs. If you can’t find what you need here, please contact me to discuss the creation of a bespoke workshop to suit your needs.



Do you want your young people to develop creativity, confidence and leadership skills? To enrol them on a programme which could help prepare them for further education or employment? Arts Award is a fantastic programme encouraging independent learning and the development of key communication skills as well as enabling young people to discover their artistic potential. As Arts Award is flexible to your young people’s needs, you can begin with the Discover/Explore options or move straight to the Bronze or Silver Award (Bronze is a nationally recognised qualification at Level 1 on the QCF whilst Silver stands at Level 2). Post-16s also have the opportunity to complete a Gold Arts Award, the successful completion of which is recognised with 35 UCAS tariff points and Level 3 QCF, the highest level offered. Arts Award is offered through Ignite Lights as a term or year-long extra curricular activity for G&T, Pupil Premium, SEND or any focus group for your school. It is also available as a transition project, enabling children from your school’s feeder schools to have a confident and positive start at Secondary level. Year 6 complete a Discover/Explore Award with the aid of Year 7, 8 or 9 pupils undertaking their Bronze/Silver Award. The programme enables links to be formed between participants, ensuring transitioning pupils will have a strong support network awaiting them in September, helping them to hit the ground running.
