Peterhouse School is Trinity Champion Centre!

Posted on 12th May 2021

Peterhouse School has been named as a Trinity Champion Centre for 2021-2022, in recognition of the school’s commitment to and success in delivering the Arts Award.

Trinity College London awards Champion status each year to a select number of schools and centres across the UK who have a proven track record in the successful delivery of the arts.

Trinity is a leading international exam board and independent education charity that specialises in the assessment of communicative and performance skills covering music, drama, combined arts and English language.

Champion Centre status is only awarded to those who can evidence the positive impact the Arts Award has had on pupils through both positive individual stories and the relationships that have been cultivated through the Award, as well as an innovative and creative approach to delivery.

Champion Centres are recognised by Trinity for their successful delivery of qualifications demonstrating achievements such as strong exam results, an exciting programme of performance events, positive impact on learners and innovation in the performing arts.

The aim of the award is to inspire teachers and learners through the creation of assessments that are enjoyable to prepare for, rewarding to teach and that develop the skills needed in real life.

Shena Edwards, Arts Co ordinator at Peterhouse School, said: “We have been a Trinity Champion Centre since 2019, so this is the third time we’ve been awarded the status for delivering Arts Award and sharing good practice regarding the Arts and their importance.
We use The Arts as a motivator to enable our pupils to develop communication skills and increase their self-confidence. Not only do we celebrate the finished piece of work but more importantly the process and learning which has been involved.”

Conny Brandt, Business Manager at Peterhouse School said: “We are so proud that Peterhouse School has been recognised as a Trinity Champion Centre for 2021-22, and we look forward to continuing to support autistic young people in their enjoyment of the arts, thus developing skills and interests which will continue into adult life.”

Throughout the year, Peterhouse School will be publishing blogs and updates on their Arts Award delivery and contributing to Trinity’s efforts to support the delivery of Arts Award in the wider sector, so follow them on Facebook or check out Peterhouse School's website to hear the latest news.
