The Schools Members' Group is run by and for teachers of art, architecture and design history in schools and further education colleges in the UK. We exchange ideas through an email group, produce resources for teachers and organise annual conferences for teachers and students. The group liaises with universities and with Ofqual and examination boards over developments in the A level. We are currently working on the Maintained Sector History of Art Project.
The Schools Group meets once a term in London, all are welcome! Please contact the AAH office if you'd like to be more involved.
These online pages are aimed at making it easier for teachers to participate in group activities and to communicate with each other and share information and resources. We look forward to hearing from you. Or you can sign up for our Schools events mailing list.
