Primary School Partnership
We have 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 is 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.
