“For us, the arts are not just subjects”

There were smiles all round at Sharnbrook Academy as staff and students celebrated getting a prestigious Gold Artsmark Award.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s award for schools which champion cultural education – with the gold award being the second-highest possible accolade.

"For us, the arts are not just subjects, they are a way of enhancing creative development and potential.

“But the hard work doesn’t stop now. We’re committed to continuing the delivery of high-quality arts and cultural education for all of our young people – and we look forward to continued progress with our Artsmark journey in the future.”

One way the school achieved the award was by hosting MindFest to raise money for the mental health charity, Mind.
