Wyvil is proud to have achieved the Artsmark Gold Award for our commitment to the arts and our ability to weave it into the curriculum.
The panel made the following comment about Wyvil's submission:
The school is able to demonstrate a confident and clear understanding of the arts and its impact, with greater ownership having developed across staff. It takes advantage of high quality arts partners in its locality. It is great to see the start of work to raise the arts to the same level within the school Autism Centre and panel ... It is clear there is very strong leadership for visual arts driven by the subject lead, and this is being shared externally.
