So we’ve been sat on this for a little while but it’s about time we shouted about it. A couple of weeks ago, following a two year rigorous application process that demonstrated Hall Cross’ commitment to the Arts through a whole range of activity including ICA-Perform, we finally got confirmation that we have become a GOLD Artsmark school.

“As a Gold Artsmark school Arts Council England celebrates your commitment to arts and cultural education at a leadership level and the opportunities embedded across your provision. Your children and young people have equal opportunity to plan, experience, participate in, and evaluate a diverse range of high-quality arts and cultural activities and you recognise the importance of development opportunities delivered by specialists for your staff in these areas. You engage with a range of arts and cultural organisations and can evidence the positive impact of these partnerships. Your children and young people have an opportunity to further develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of arts and culture and you are working to share the expertise you have established.”

The feedback, which includes many high-profile arts organisations and leaders additionally stated that,

“The panel commended your school’s strong commitment to arts and culture, ensuring dedicated time and resource to develop your provision. Your introduction of Bronze Arts Award and the support programmes established for primary schools to engage with Artsmark were noted as strengths of your application.”

A massive thank you and congratulations to all staff, senior leaders and students who continue to ensure broad, exciting and ambitious opportunities take place within the Arts at Hall Cross!
