Harrow Way School has been awarded the highest honour available to schools delivering an Arts Curriculum by the Arts Council of Great Britain. After a lengthy application process and a thorough assessment period we have been granted a Gold Arts Mark. Arts Mark is the standard by which the Arts Council judge the quality of Arts Teaching in schools. There are three levels: Arts Mark, Arts Mark Silver and Arts Mark Gold. The Art, Dance, Drama and Music departments worked very hard during the autumn term to complete a lengthy and in depth application form. Then we were visited by Mrs Anne French, an assessor from the Arts Council who put us through a rigorous investigation process before the final confirmation of our award arrived a month ago. Since then we have been waiting for the formal presentation to be made before we could announce our success to the world. On Wednesday 27th June, Mr Baxter, took, Head Girl, Kayleigh Parker, and Deputy Head Boy, Matt Burgess to Horsham in Sussex, where they were presented with our certificate by the poet and author John Agar. Everyone is absolutely delighted with this award which confirms the quality of the Arts work carried out at Harrow Way.
