The Department for Education has announced plans to make the narrowly defined English Baccalaureate (EBacc) all but compulsory in schools.
The EBacc proposal means that every pupil taking their GCSEs would have to study a minimum of seven, narrowly defined, GCSEs: English literature and English language, maths, double or triple science, a modern and/or ancient language, history and/or geography.

The average number of GCSEs taken by pupils in England is eight. If these plans become a reality, there would be little room left for pupils to study art, dance, design, drama, music or other creative industry relevant subjects.
The EBacc includes no creative subjects; and we need your help to save creativity in schools.

Please note that though we want to spread the word about creative activity much of what appears here has not been quality checked by HRAEN and consequently HRAEN does not systematically endorse the projects on this page.
