Become an Arnolfini School

Find out about our Schools Membership scheme and how you can get involved.

Arnolfini offers a schools membership scheme to enable pupils and teachers to get the most from working with the gallery, as well as being the first to hear about exciting opportunities for schools and young people throughout the year.  

In 2015/2016 Arnolfini has been working with: Bristol Brunel Academy, Hanham Woods Academy, Kings Oak Academy, Orchard School, Bath Community Academy, St Brendans 6th Form College, Digitech Studio School, Beacon Rise Primary School, Red Maids School and Badminton School.

Proceeds from our schools membership scheme go directly into our young people's programme, providing opportunities, careers advice and support for aspiring young artists and creatives in the city.
