For schools

NCW works with many schools and hundreds of pupils each year to foster a love of books, words and ideas.

We recognise that creativity and a love of words and writing can begin at an early age, and increased confidence with words and ideas supports enjoyment and attainment throughout education.

As such, our work with schools aims to create meaningful creative experiences in and out of Dragon Hall for pupils of all ages. Our work is designed to nurture confidence with and pleasure in working and playing with words, supporting curricular aims related to vocabulary building, fluency, connection and wellbeing. We also endeavour (through programmes with young people out of school such as Lit from the Inside) to offer insights to careers in the arts.

All our opportunities for schools are best found by signing up to our newsletter. Our learning team often emails school contacts directly with opportunities and are also able to offer guidance in specific enquiries relating to writers and translators in schools.
