This is part of UCL’s work towards the new campus opening there in 2021 as part of East Bank.

Primary School Partnership
We are coming to the end of a three-year partnership with William Tyndale Primary School in Islington, where the school has one or more of our activities every term. Our aim has been to support the school in raising attainment, while introducing subjects that are studied at UCL.
A weekly after-school art club used our objects to inspire Key Stage 2 children. Supported by a student from the Slade School of Fine Art, they then made their own wonder-boxes in the first year. The following year they worked as Slade students would have a century before, with an added focus on women artists. They collaborated on a final piece of work. This Spring, the focus is the Grant Museum of Zoology collections to inpspire animal creations.
