Artis has been working in schools across London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds for over 10 years, and runs sessions for 50,000 children each week.
Artis provides sessions that enrich the curriculum, provide PPA cover, transition projects and CPD for staff.
Artis works in partnership with schools to bring ‘oomph’ and magic to their curriculum, out of school activities and professional development sessions. We believe children learn best when they are having an enjoyable experience that stretches the boundaries of their minds. We create a bespoke programme around curriculum needs so children’s imaginative thinking relates directly to their classroom learning.
Our programmes are a fusion of music, drama and movement delivered through a classroom theme by an Artis Specialist, a highly trained professional performing artist. Our sessions are also carefully planned to focus on school priorities, whether they be literacy, emotional wellbeing, cultural awareness or fitness.
Our resources are made up of series of audio tutorials or podcasts. In each series there are around 20-25 audio tutorials, each lasting 6-10 minutes each. Each tutorial will examine and analyse a particular unit within a subject and will use sound effects, quotes and music to really bring them alive. They can be used both inside and outside a classroom, for homework setting, as preparation for a class and for revision. The tutorials are written by experts, including academics from leading universities, such as Oxford, Exeter, Durham, Cambridge, Kent and London, chief examiners from the exam boards and teachers from both the independent and state sector.
Research from Ipsos MORI and BT found that 84% of teachers who have accessed Barefoot materials now understand computational thinking, compared to just 57% of their peers who hadn’t been involved.
Barefoot supports primary educators with the confidence, knowledge, skills and resources to teach computer science. Resources aligned to the curricula for all UK nations. This includes FREE high-quality lesson plans and local CPD workshops, all designed to help teachers gain confidence in bringing computer science to life in the classroom.

Guzled is an online resource bank for Physics teachers, offering a range of instantly downloadable resources covering the whole IB and A Level specification for every examination board in the UK. We are ahead of the game on every curriculum reform and are prepared for the changes arriving in September 2015.
Sally Weatherly founded Guzled with the aim of helping physics teachers of all levels, whether Guzled resources are a starting point for a lesson plan or a complete scheme of work for the whole department.
“It all began when I was Head of Physics at a leading independent school and was writing my department’s schemes of work and Moodle courses. I needed to provide structure for the more experienced teachers in my department, but something deeper for the NQTs. I needed something that was educationally sound, extremely high quality and really easy for the teachers to use.
I have been a teacher for 12 years and I know that I am a good one! I knew I could develop a resource bank that is just what teachers need and want. I have been delighted with how quickly the Guzled brand has grown and how many teachers we have helped along the way.”
