Our Awards

Arts College
Specialist School Status

Arts Colleges will raise standards of achievement and the quality of learning in their chosen area of the arts for all their students, leading to whole school improvement in performance. Arts Colleges will nurture within their students a lifelong passion for, and appreciation of, the arts as both participants and discriminating audiences.  They will be inclusive by promoting enjoyment of many different artistic forms and encouraging participation in a wide variety of artistic activity for all students. There are three broad areas of the Arts - performing, visual and media.  Schools may either focus exclusively on one of these broad areas or, if they prefer, focus mainly on one or the broad areas but include an element from one of the other two.  For example, where the main focus is on performing arts the main focus could be on music and drama and the other element could be art and design. Arts colleges can also choose any combination of the three arts-based subjects.
