Young people

During the 2016/2017 academic year, we are developing a programme for young people in partnership with Barlows Primary School. This school, based in the north of Liverpool, has been consistently assessed in recent years as delivering outstanding work; the school has a role in training teachers for the profession.


The European Opera Centre programme with Barlows Primary School will lead to a model to help deliver the educational curriculum across many subjects. The work will be evaluated at university level.


The programme involves artists planning to pursue professional careers in the arts; training in working with young people is provided.

The Centre's Trustees approved a Safeguarding Policy on 22 March 2017.

The European Opera Centre is most grateful to the following trusts and foundations which have enabled this programme to be launched :


P H Holt Foundation

Ernest Cook Trust

Granada Foundation

Hemby Charitable Trust

Ravensdale Trust

Rushworth Trust
