Artsmark Gold!

Added 7 years ago



This year we achieved ARTSMARK Gold for the fourth time (Twelve years running).  This is evidence of the on-going excellence in our teaching and our outstanding provision of the arts across the school. The quality of our arts provision is held in high esteem by the students and by the local community and the impact and success of our partnerships is clear. The enthusiasm and commitment from the students was clearly evident in the student feedback session as they had so many positive contributions to make.  All criteria were met and the assessor commented on the very strong, thorough and detailed application.

The award is a credit to the fantastic Creative Arts team and a true reflection of all the very hard work they put in both in and out of the classroom. I am so proud of the students and their commitment to the arts at Richard Lander their enthusiasm and dedication to school production, choirs, art projects and events, dance, photography, and creative writing is always truly impressive. The Creative Arts are a vital part of the school curriculum as students learn to develop life skills of planning, team-work and communication. Our subjects help to develop emotional maturity and empathy whilst enabling young people to build their ability to control new and challenging situations. The Arts are alive at Richard Lander School and we are always finding new ways to celebrate and be creative!
