We've launched our Arts Award

It’s an exciting time to be involved in the arts at Tewkesbury School, as the school is now ready to launch the Arts Award.

This is a national qualification that inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents. It encourages young people to be inspired by art and artists, encouraging their enjoyment and getting them to participate in cultural events. Eight Tewkesbury School teachers have been trained as Arts Award Advisors to help support students to gain their qualification.

We are offering the Arts Award at Bronze and Silver level, and these are accredited qualifications that are nationally recognised.

Young people have to take part in the arts and develop their arts practice. They must visit arts events and share their views; research and work alongside artists and other creative professionals; and share their own art skills via leadership. It covers the full range of art forms, including (but not limited to): photography, music, drama, dance, writing, fashion design, film-making, web design, painting, sculpture....

Many students at Tewkesbury School already participate in the arts and this award gives them a chance to be recognised for their passion and dedication.
