Affectionately known as The Red House, Plymouth School of Creative Arts required a very different kind of space to create a simple, robust and permeable school that would encourage openness, sharing, curiosity and enable making in all subjects to be used as a way of thinking and exploring.
This new film, by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, looks through the eyes of children and staff to capture both the philosophy and the everyday life of the school.
The film premiered at Tate Exchange as part of the Making Learning symposium on 24 January 2017 and can be viewed on our films page.

    Oh..I wish.. I wish I had gone to a school like this that aims to develop the gifts of every child instead of suppressing their intrinsic needs!
