Special Arts Award for Smithdon High School

Smithdon High School is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Silver Artsmark Award

Artsmark is an award given for inspiring young people to create, experience and participate in extraordinary art and culture. It  is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by,  Arts Council England. 

Headteacher John Hirst says everyone at Smithdon High School is delighted:

"We have a silver Artsmark which is an indication of our current commitment and our plans for future development of provision in this field.

“The students put on a fantastic show with Legally Blonde and it’s productions like this which illustrate how much emphasis we put on the arts and how well our students embrace the opportunities within that field.

“It is good to see Smithdon’s arts provision emerging, with an increased range of clubs, trips and visitors in place and planned; growing engagement from students, notably in instrumental music and greater exposure to the wider community through performances and a strengthening of pupil voice."

We would like to take this opportunity to  congratulate all our children and staff on receiving this award.
