Arts for schools and young people

Cultured logo
Cultured (St Helens Cultural Education Partnership) was created to ensure that we are offering the best possible information about all arts and cultural opportunities across St Helens Borough, as well as working in collaboration with schools to build on the town's already fantastic offer.

As an Artsmark town, a creative quality standard for schools accredited by Arts Council England, St Helens Borough recognises that all creative subjects are a driver for whole school improvement, developing students' confidence, ability and creativity.
