About Summer School

Summer School is framed by artistic practice, where it intersects with teaching and connects to Tate’s collection and exhibitions. Each year the course programme explores the possibilities for using Tate as an exceptional resource for teachers. Participants are invited to contribute to an evolving conversation around new approaches to teaching and learning in the classroom.

Explore new teaching methods, frameworks and situations for you to carry out in the classroom. Step into the role of both teacher and student, as we imagine exciting ways of supporting engagement with art.

Summer School attracts an exciting group of teachers and artists from around the world to create a dynamic and memorable learning experience.

Discount for teachers on Summer School

Bursary places are available for UK teachers for Summer School. Teachers are entitled to one bursary place a year on a first-come first-served basis. Each teachers’ course will have five bursary places available.

We greatly value the opportunity to work with a diverse group of colleagues at Summer School, including those visiting internationally. Conversation and discussion play an integral role in all Tate courses and so to ensure your enjoyment and maximise your experience it is essential that you are able to use and understand English well.

Please do get in touch via schoolsandteachers@tate.org.uk if you have any queries regarding this.
