Creative arts thriving with score of talents in Bromsgrove

CREATIVE talent has been recognised at an awards evening at North Bromsgrove High School.

The annual event, held in memory of former head of English, Mark Barden, recognised the school’s most promising art, drama, English, music, media and film pupils.

Three major accolades were given to students who made an outstanding contribution to the school’s creative arts. Drama student Will Colley and cellist Siobhan Hughes, both 18, received the awards, along with 17-year-old Josh Barber for his technical expertise on school productions.

David Gleave, event organiser and sixth-form dean, said: “Arts awards were again another success, allowing us to showcase the fantastic creative talents of students while rewarding their achievements. “We know universities and employers are looking for well-rounded young people who have made a real contribution to their school as these students have.”

The evening also featured a range of dance, singing and acting performances.
