As part of our Artsmark legacy ALP Leicester transformed into a captivating time-travel experience. Every floor embraced a distinct historical era, adorning their spaces and attire to reflect that period. Students at ALP Leicester embarked on their school day by entering through a TARDIS, and the astonishment on their faces was priceless.


During Black History Month, participants had the chance to discover, honor, and contemplate the remarkable contributions of Black individuals to society. Throughout the month, they also had the opportunity to savor a diverse array of African/Caribbean cuisines. ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ

Thursday, October 19th, the girls from Pierview Academy had a blast when they paid a visit to the WOW bus (WOW - Women of the World Festival) We had a fantastic time exploring this interactive space and engaging in some creative activities focused on gender equality.

๐ŸŽจโœจ This past Wednesday, 20/10/2023, our incredible learners dove into a STEAM-inspired adventure! They embarked on an artistic journey, using their fingers as brushes to craft either self-portraits or any image that sparked their imagination. Finger painting is an amazing avenue for individuals to explore, learn, and grow through sensory experiences, and it's the perfect platform for their creativity to truly shine. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ
