Royal Opera House trailblazer

Royal Opera House is working with local, regional and national arts organisations, in partnership with us, to deliver cultural education in Thurrock.

Thurrock Trailblazer is an innovative programme that boosts creative learning in schools and accelerates pupils’ development.

It includes:

  • high quality arts and cultural activities
  • visits to heritage sites
  • specialist teacher training

During 2015/16, Thurrock Trailblazer worked with more than 250 teachers in Continued Professional Development programmes.

The programme has reached dozens of schools and thousands of students, all of whom participated in creative and cultural activities.
