Altrincham Grammar School for Girls awarded Artsmark Gold
Arts Council England has awarded Artsmark Gold to Altrincham Grammar School for Girls in recognition of the school’s commitment to, and excellence in, arts education. Altrincham Grammar School for Girls is part of the 1,750 schools in England who received an Artsmark this year.
Mary Speakman (Headteacher) said ‘I’m delighted that the Arts Council has recognised Altrincham Grammar School for Girls’ dynamic arts education programme. I’d like to thank all our staff for their hard work in achieving this award’.
‘Artsmark is more than simply a mark of distinction to us; taking part in the scheme has enabled us to develop our arts provision, and see the students who take part become more self-confident, engaged and excited about learning.’
Alan Davey, Chief Executive, Arts Council England, said:
‘Arts Council England believes that the earlier children are creatively inspired, the more likely they are to have a lifelong engagement with art - something that can transform lives and give young people a voice for their thoughts and feelings.’
‘Artsmark – now nationally recognised as a prestigious and coveted award, supported by the Department for Education and Department for Culture Media and Sports – sets the standard for an outstanding arts provision in schools and other education settings and it’s great to see so many new settings attaining Artsmark this year. This award recognises Altrincham Grammar School for Girls’ commitment to providing exciting art experiences and their belief in the power of creativity.’
