Big Schools Days at Alexandra Palace are large-scale, fun filled days with workshops, presentations, Q&A sessions, competitions, performances, master classes and stunts for schools across Haringey and neighbouring boroughs. Big Schools enable young people and teachers to work with leading industry professionals who signpost skills and opportunities to break through into the creative sector.
This year marks our third collaboration with The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). BAFTA is an independent arts charity that brings the very best work in film, games and television to public attention and supports the growth of creative talent in the UK and internationally. Big Schools Day: BAFTA kids offers unique access to some of the world’s most inspiring talent.
This year we launched our first Big Schools (SEND) event for pupils with special education needs. Partnering with London Youth Games and Para Dance, this event showcased the best of dance disabilities talent from across London’s in secondary school (years 7-11).
Alexandra Palace brings world-class creative organisations and practitioners to Haringey. With our Big School Bites programme we ask companies to pitch new ideas for workshops at the Palace to broaden the range of opportunities for schools in Haringey. Recent contributors include BBC Proms Learning, BAFTA, Discovery Learning and many more.
