SCHOOLS & COLLEGES

BOM offers various programmes that can be tailored to fit any Key Stage and can be held either within or outside of the classroom. Below are some examples of what we can do.

We offer guided tours of our current exhibition(s) and can provide talks focused on different careers within the arts – and they’re completely free of charge!


Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths (STEAM) After School Clubs

BOM takes the STEM subjects and adds art into the mix, resulting in engaging experiences that cover the aims of the curriculum. STEAM after school clubs offer bespoke experiences that can be tailored to any Key Stage.

Currently BOM is running projects in two schools:

  • A 6 week, space-inspired electronics project for Baskerville Special Educational Needs School in Harborne
  • A 6 week STEAM taster programme for Heartlands Academy in Duddeston. Introducing students to new forms of art and science; including glitch art, sound art and making pinhole cameras.

These sessions are led by artists and creative technologists who have Enhanced DBS Checks and have experience in leading workshops.

Workshops and Projects tailored to your needs

Led by BOM Fellows (artists, scientists and technologists based at BOM), these workshops can be tailored towards Key Stages, class sizes & student ability. Depending on the workshop, they can be carried out at BOM, in your classroom or at a school event.

The workshops and projects offer a wide range of activities, ranging across a variety of specialities which include:

  • Programming and coding
  • Creating video games
  • Analogue/digital photography
  • Glitch Art

We are in the process of creating a Fellows Workshop Guide, which will provide in-depth details of the programmes and workshops we are able to provide. In the meantime, please contact education@bom.org.uk for more information.


Arts Award

Currently in its 10th year, the Arts Award is a programme associated with Arts Council England. Tailored towards young people up to the age of 25, it supports them to grow, connect with and take part in arts communities. There are five levels, from Discover to Gold, that young people can complete whilst compiling a portfolio, experience and confidence.

As an organisation, BOM fully supports the Arts Award and encourages young people already working on their award to work with us to complete it. Email education@bom.org.uk to find out how we can help.
