TALENTED pupils at Skegness Grammar School have shown what an artistic bunch they are after a group of them gained their Arts Awards recently.

The award has been running for five years and is recognised nationally as a benchmark of students’ creativity, research, teamwork and leadership skills.

It is a nationally recognised qualification and accredited by Trinity College London.

It is similar to the Duke of Edinburgh Award, but designed for those who wish to pursue their interest in the arts.

“This is the first group of pupils in the school who have been given the opportunity to work towards the award,” said a spokesperson for the school.

“It took enormous commitment to produce the work, which was praised by the external moderator.

“Those pupils involved in the award had to create portfolios which demonstrated their particular skills and interests.

“Special congratulations must go to Lewis Knight, a year 12 pupil, who achieved a silver level Arts Award, and Bradley Johnson in year 13, who is the first person in the school to achieve a gold level Arts Award.
