We are thrilled to have been awarded the Artsmark Gold Award. [Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England.] They noted how ‘Heathbrook provides a rich arts curriculum of diverse and broad experiences for pupils from high quality local and national arts organisations, where children are encouraged to lead their own learning.’ In particular, they commended our ‘incredibly high levels of parental engagement at Heathbrook. It takes a lot of time, care and trust to foster deep supportive relationships between a school and its parents, and it is clearly a strength of the school’.
We are incredibly grateful for our strong partnership with so many of the ‘local and national arts organisations’ which made this possible. They include:
The Southbank Centre (including the Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery and Queen Elizabeth Hall)
Spare Tyre (Theatre Without Prejudice)
The Imagination Lab
National Trust (575 Wandsworth Road property)
London Russian Ballet School
