Earlier this year ALNS became the first Platinum level Artsmark school in Hampshire. Part of us achieving this prestigious award was because we made a commitment to developing the Arts for young people not just at ALNS but in the city and beyond.
This year has been a busy time. We have been supporting other schools applying for Artsmark, talking at conferences about ALNS and the Arts and most recently we have become part of the Portsmouth Cultural Education Partnership. The partnership is bringing together members of the council, the police, arts practitioners and schools to develop the Arts for young people in the city.
It is very exciting that it is being recognised just how important being involved in cultural activities is and even more exciting that ALNS is a huge part of this development within the city.
Watch this space for more opportunities for young people to get involved as the projects develop.
