Welcome to the information page for the Katherine Warington Arts, Culture and society award.
Developing independent learning skills, the ability to research and to present effectively underpin the work of schools in developing our young people to become successful in the future, in whatever path of work or study that they choose. This, combined with the holistic education that Katherine Warington School offers allows our students to become effective and active citizens of the twenty first century.
In Year 9, all students will undertake a period of self directed study, supported by a dedicated member of staff, and will over the course of six weeks create either of the follow:-
- Creating a piece of research on an area they are interested in
- Creating an artefact, such as a music, drama, dance or art piece
Students will then be required to present their work in a short presentation to an audience of staff and students. Each student will then be marked as Pass, Merit and Distinction and will receive their award in a final assembly.
This piece of work will place students in an advantageous position to pursue progression routes such as LAMDA Grade 4 Public Speaking, the Level Two Project qualification and even the EPQ qualification in Sixth Form.
