Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement

Ark Helenswood is recognised nationally as a school that is at the forefront of arts education. At a crucial time for arts learning in the UK, we continue to recognise the arts as a vital part of our students’ learning and development.

We have been chosen to take part in a major national scheme which will track the effectiveness of arts education and the students’ learning and engagement over a three year period. The programme involves a partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Tate modern and Nottingham University and we have been chosen to take part as a recognition of the high quality arts work that we deliver.

Helenswood Academy welcomes new Head Girl Febienne Fuller

This month we have said a big thank you and farewell to the Head Girl team headed up by Annie Starr. I want to personally thank her and the whole Head Girl / House team for all their hard work and dedication .

Mrs Monk said at the handover “this team will be a hard act to follow”.

We welcomed Febienne Fuller and her new team by presenting them with their badges of office. Over the next few weeks the team will be planning their year. The first meeting will be with Mrs Phillips on May 18th to discuss their roles and expectations.
