During the accreditation, the Arts Council England said;
“Arts Council England celebrates your ongoing commitment to arts and cultural education at a leadership level, and the opportunities established across your whole setting. Your children and young people are offered equal opportunity to plan, experience, participate in, and evaluate a broad range of high-quality arts and cultural activities, and you recognise the importance of development opportunities delivered by specialists for your staff that have measurable effects in these areas. You engage with a range of arts and cultural organisations and other settings, 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 good practice you have established”
We’re excited to build the profile of the Arts at Esher High School and will continue to ensure all students receive a high-quality Arts education allowing them to be creative, authentic and confident young people ready for the future.
Ben Allin, Head of Performing and Visual Arts said "It's so rewarding to see that the Arts are truly alive at Esher High School. The Arts provision we’re able to provide our students is second to none and this recognition celebrates all the hard work our students, staff and parents have put in to making the Arts a vibrant and important part of our school community. Thank you to all involved in the process".
