About

| Accelerate Ambition | 
| Aspiration |

All children & young people have the right to access new experiences and opportunities 
to live a fulfilling life that builds a brighter future

Creative Academies Network is a multi-layered organisation that supports the development of children & young people to reach their full potential through Cultural Education, Creative Practice & Civic Leadership in their community.

To achieve our mission we have set five core goals

  • Children & Young People can access  & engage in arts, culture, heritage, media & sport.
  • Children & Young People can engage in education, employment & volunteering.
  • Children & Young People can access recreational & leisure time provision.
  • Children & Young People become motivated, self-aware, receptive, resilient, responsible, confident, and good communicators.
  • Children & Young People can access support, advice & training in their local community.

“It is important we get the foundation just right to raise the aspirations and ambitions of children and young people”
