Why were the classes set up?

The classes were set up as part of one of Rambert School Principal’s initiatives, when principle Amanda Britton took her role in 2016, one of her first actions was to open the door to Rambert School and share what we have with the local community.  The community classes are hosted within the state of the art studios and are available as either weekly drop ins or on a termly basis.
