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.
Over the course of the year, students in year nine are exposed to a range of educational experiences including music, drama, art, engineering, the future of the environment and Chinese culture. For the final part of this programme students will either:-
- Create a piece of research on an area they are interested in
- Create an artefact, such as a music, drama, dance or art piece
Students will propose their project and be supported by a supervisor to support them in their work. At the end of the project, they will then present their work to a small group of staff and students, discussing their inspiration and the process involved in creating their work.
At the end of the year, students will receive their award at Pass, Merit or Distinction in a celebration assembly, and the top 10% of students and their parents will be invited to a special celebration evening.
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.
