Thomas Hinderwell joins Artsmark award scheme.

Pupils and staff at Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy are today celebrating after joining Artsmark Award; the Arts Council England’s award for schools that champion arts and culture in the classroom.

In order to become an Artsmark School, Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy has demonstrated its commitment to giving each and every child a high quality art and cultural education. Artsmark schools gain access to exceptional resources as well as networks of the country’s most treasured cultural organisations, helping them develop and strengthen their arts provision.

We are initially aiming for the silver level award and will hope to continue past this towards platinum status. All of us are looking forward to this opportunity to help our pupils develop outstanding art skills and showcase them to the rest of the school and wider community.

The Artsmark award encompasses both visual and performance art and already we have many ideas that we hope to bring to fruition, so keep a look out for new and exciting developments at Thomas Hinderwell Priamry Academy!
