Saint George's Church of England School, on Church Street, Gravesend is celebrating being awarded the Artsmark Gold for the third time.

This is the most prestigious award that Arts Council England presents to schools in recognition of outstanding arts provision.

Assistant headteacher Nikki Shibli, said: “This is the third time the school has been presented with Artsmark Gold, resulting in Saint George’s holding this prestigious award for almost a decade. Representatives from Arts Council England were so impressed they said the school’s Arts provision was comparable to that of the specialist Brit School of Performing Arts.

“We’re extremely proud of this achievement and now look forward to helping develop arts education throughout Gravesham as

staff and students have for many years been engaged with a diverse range of projects and these are now set to help support Arts delivery in a variety of other schools and institutions.”
