We've been celebrating this week after receiving a prestigious Gold Artsmark Award. We have worked very hard to develop our arts and culture provision through the curriculum and involved the entire school.
We were supported by Festival Bridge, part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival Trust, which works in the area supporting and developing arts and culture.
“We are extremely proud to have achieved the Artsmark Gold Award,” said headteacher Mr Willingham. "It is great to receive recognition for the fantastic work of our arts subjects. Visitors often comment on the high quality of the work produced by our students."
An Artsmark assessor commended us for our rich arts offer along with a strong curriculum for the subjects in Key Stage 3 and 4. Uptake in arts subjects at St Clement's is also well above the national average.
He also commented on our investment in additional clubs and enrichment opportunities - with regular trips and workshops to expand learning and offer richer experiences for students.
“I would like to congratulate St Clement’s High School on their Artsmark Award," said Dr Darren Henley, Chief Executive of the Arts Council. "It demonstrates that through offering a broad, balanced and creative curriculum, young people have the opportunity to develop character and resilience, increasing their knowledge, curiosity and skills that will remain with them through to adult life,”
