Education Endowment Fund indicates that the impact of arts participation is positive and improved outcomes have been identified in the core subjects – English, Mathematics, and Science. Research suggests that the arts participation has a greater effect on average for younger learners and, in some cases for disadvantaged pupils and benefits have been found in both primary and secondary schools. Wider benefits include more positive attitudes to learning and increased well-being.
