Year 13s Charlotte, Maya and Holly have all achieved their Gold Arts Award whilst Year 8 Rosie has earned her Bronze.

Even more impressive, Rosie is the youngest student to achieve an Arts Award at the school.

Former student Sarah also achieved her Gold Arts Award. Now studying Dietetics at the University of Hertfordshire, Sarah’s award focussed on researching medical artists and art therapy resulting in an anatomical piece which went on display in the school’s Biology lab.

The Arts Award challenges students to get involved and take the lead in the world of creative and performing arts helping them to develop into the cultural innovators of the future.

Truro High is the only school or college in the county to offer the Gold Arts Award.

The girls’ projects have explored a wide range of creative and performing arts on offer at the school. These have included developing and conducting a 50-strong choir, choreographing group routines for the school’s annual dance show and running an extracurricular animation club for younger students.

Having achieved the top level of the qualification, Charlotte, Maya and Holly are now preparing their applications to some of the world’s top universities.

Inspired by their success, bronze award holder Rosie is already busy working towards her silver which has seen her leading extracurricular dance clubs at school and choreographing a routine for this November’s Dance Show LIVE!

The latest cohort of Arts Award participants are also hard at work undertaking in-depth research and project planning for their projects too.

For the first time, this year the Bronze Arts award will be offered to every student in Year 9 to offer them the opportunity to help develop both their artistic and leadership skills.

Head of Creative and Performing Arts, Mrs Judith Tutin said: “The Gold Award has been hugely successful for our Sixth Formers so this is a really exciting development. The girls can choose visual art, dance, drama or music, as well as combinations of these. Their skills will be covered in existing lessons and extra-curricular clubs, helping the girls develop independence by documenting their creative journey and doing leadership activities in these areas.”
