This year we are launching ARTS AWARD which is a range of unique qualifications that support pupils to grow as artists, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form - from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.
Through progressing through the five levels, young people get to:
- discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in arts activities
- experience arts events
- develop creative and communication skills that are essential for success in 21st century life
- explore the work of artists and craftspeople and gain insights into the professional arts world
- gain experience and knowledge to help progress into further education and employment.
As part of Arts Award, we invite professionals into the school to work with our young people in dance, theatre and music.
We are also working towards the ARTSMARK accreditation, the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England.
