We are really proud of the work we do in schools and in the past have delivered a range of projects and programmes designed to engage young people in the arts and culture from a range of backgrounds and experiences.

Our schools programme is bespoke and designed specifically to the needs of the individual learning objective and can be linked directly to curriculum outcomes or as an enhancement to student and or whole school development.

Our work in schools is delivered across Greater Manchester and the Pennine Lancs Area and regularly reaches beyond this area to the whole of England’s North West and the Nation.

Types of work we have delivered have included support for:

  • Arts Award
  • Artsmark
  • PHSE
  • Drama
  • Media
  • Visual Arts
  • Theatre Studies
  • Whole School Development
  • Transitions
  • Bespoke thematic workshops

The most successful of these projects have all been delivered collaboratively with teachers and students, so if you have an idea for a project but are not entirely sure which direction to take it, or even where to start on how to get it funded, please email our director, Jim Johnson (who is a former teacher with over twenty years experience delivering the arts in education settings) about how Peshkar can work with you.  Please email
