Congratulations to all children in Years 4, 5 and 6. They have been successful in completing Trinity College’s Art Award at the Explore Level. This is an Entry Level Qualification. More information about the award and the next levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold can be found on the Arts Award website.
In order to gain this award children have explored a wide variety of art forms over the course of the year. Their journey began with our Whole School Global Arts Week and open exhibition back in September. More work, trips etc followed and an external moderator visited to validate assessments.

Our children’s work, after being on display in our school hall is now on display in their schools. We have made links with these schools which we will nurture over the coming years. We have received some gorgeous art work from around 60 children from these schools and have put some work on display in the school hall, the rest will go on display in September. Photos attached are those sent from International school in Vietnam and show students with their work .. then with our work.
