Creativity is at the core of reading and writing, at the heart of speaking and listening. So our range of Creative Literacy programmes offers S1 - S5 students opportunities to explore and experiment with words in different contexts.

Experiential, exciting and empowering, our imaginative approaches harness tried and trusted approaches from the worlds of drama, visual art and creative writing. Approaches specifically developed to support young people in developing their reading and writing skills – and to boost motivation, build on existing knowledge and enhance progression.

Our workshops are a perfect way to celebrate Book Week Scotland, World Book Day, World Poetry Day and Shakespeare Week in your school! 

"I was totally in awe of your ability to engage the students; it has really given me food for thought with respect to how to introduce reading skills across our department (I think I have learned as much as the students!)." St Michael’s Catholic School, Aylesbury

"Thank you again from everyone here at Lathom's English Department for an absolutely fantastic day. My colleague's really enjoyed your insight and I will be sure to forward all the positive feedback we receive from pupils as a result of the sessions." (Streamed Literacy Workshop) Lathom High School
