At Bowerham Primary and Nursery School, we have a long history of developing the Arts to ensure our children experience an enriched learning journey through school.

We are already involved in school and enrichment events such as Music Festivals, Light Up Lancaster, The Arts Trail, Music Celebration Assemblies, Dukes partnerships, Learn to Play Live, Key Stage productions and so much more!

The school now has the chance to showcase our strength in Arts by working towards a PLATINUM ARTSMARK as recognised by the Arts Council of England.
