We are delighted to announce that following a recent moderation visit from Trinity College London, the following pupils have all successfully achieved their Arts Award qualification.

Bronze Award (Level 1— recognised as comparable to 1 GCSE D-G)

Hannah Connolly, Sophie Davis, Jesamine Dempsey, Sarah Gregory, Zak Heath, Alex Hitchman, Megan McCallion, Emily Morris, Eloise Muratore, Nicole Penny, Zuzanna Rog, Ellie Taylor and Holly Williams.

Silver Award (Level 2 – recognised as comparable to 1 GCSE A*- C)

Eleana Turner-Hurd, Lilya Turner-Hurd and Billy Vale (pictured above).

With certificates came this feedback from Mr Lines at Trinity College: “Congratulations on a very successful set of submissions. They show individuality and creativity. There is an abundance of evidence to show how hard your young people have worked and how arts award has inspired them”.

Having guided this year’s Bronze and Silver award winners, our Arts Award Coordinator, Adele Hamilton, will be recruiting her latest success stories after the February half term.

Not everyone wants to be on the stage or in the limelight, but everyone has the potential to express themselves artistically. Your child may pursue their passion with structured music lessons, theatre visits, dance or drama clubs. Alternatively, your child may send much of their spare time writing song lyrics, learning an instrument using the internet, writing poetry or short stories, sketching or painting, perhaps even doodling cartoons or taking photographs. All these pursuits could amount to another qualification to add to their personal statement one day.

Any child interested in unlocking their ‘arty’ side or just want to learn more about the Bronze Award, should go to a special introductory meeting in the school library on Wednesday 24th February at 12.45pm.

Parents can also contact her directly via email on
