Avonbourne College has been awarded half a million pounds from the Government to build a new expressive arts block.
This facility will be the base where all music, drama, art and dance students can perfect their skills.
It will have tailored rooms for all the artistic disciplines – including art studios, dance studios and acoustic halls for drama and music.
Executive headteacher of Avonbourne, Debbie Godfrey-Phaure, said: “We are delighted that we have been given this opportunity to further enhance our art facilities.
“The school is passionate about encouraging children to explore their creative side as we know this is crucial to providing them with a well rounded education.
“This new arts block will provide fantastic facilities to match the top talent we have here.”
Avonbourne College has won a Gold Arts Mark for Creativity from the Arts Council England. This is a flagship programme to enable schools and other organisations to strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision – with gold being the highest award.
The school’s new expressive arts block will open in September 2013.
