Arts Award 2020

Academic

Third and Fourth Year Hamptonians have successfully completed the design element of their Silver Arts Award.

The Arts Award, managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England, enables young people to research, plan, complete and review a creative project of their own choosing, as well as developing leadership skills in their chosen area. The award is the same standard as a GCSE or IGCSE higher level grade. This year thirty five pupils chose a wide range of passions to pursue from publishing photographic books to writing poetry, building dioramas to designing eco-friendly buildings of the future and producing animations and insightful documentaries.

A flavour of the creative projects can be seen below:

The boys are looking forward to participating in a Virtual Arts Award Leadership Day later this month, when they will lead workshops on a wide range of diverse creative skills to Lower School Hamptonians, encouraging them to pursue a project of their own.

Co-ordinator of the Arts Award, Miss Louise Teunissen, praised the boys for their hard work:

The quality of work this year is extremely impressive, even more so because the boys have been completing their projects in such challenging circumstances. It’s wonderful to see Hamptonians pursuing such a wide variety of passions.

We hope that some of this year’s cohort will follow in the footsteps of two of last year’s Arts Award students who featured in the Trinity Talent Class of 2019. You can read about Jamie Reger and Bayley Burridge’s projects here.
