Artsmark is a national award scheme managed by Arts Council England that recognises schools with a high level of provision in the arts. The scheme is open to all schools in the country and awards may be made at one of three levels, gold being the ultimate accolade. Haymerle has been fortunate to have achieved Arts Mark Gold for the second time in Round 12. Arts mark encompasses the 4 main areas of music, drama, art and dance both in terms of curriculum work and links with the local community.
Walk on Wednesdays
Haymerle School takes part in the Walk on Wednesdays scheme in Southwark. As our pupils arrive on transport from across the local and neighbouring boroughs we adapt the programme so that all pupils walk to and from one of their weekly activities at least once a week. The children enjoy receiving their badges to celebrate their success!
