SILVER screen-themed celebrations have been held at Colne Valley High School.
A summer concert was staged to mark the school’s recent successes in the arts.
In the last two weeks the Linthwaite school has been awarded specialist status in the arts and also the Artsmark gold by the Arts Council.
Head teacher Mrs Linda Wright said the school deserved the recognition.
She said: “I feel that we are second to none in this area in the range, quality and extent of our involvement in performing arts.”
The concert allowed students to show their talents to a wide audience.
And they were joined by local junior schools, as part of the school’s community link with Sing Global, a project run by and with Gill Bond, of Slaithwaite Satellites.
Improvements and plans are now under way at the school to provide accommodation and facilities for dance, drama, music and media, combined with recording and editing suites.
Mrs Wright, head of creative and performing arts Suzanne Hamilton and Year 11 students Amy Clancy and Jacob Lodge attended a special ceremony at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds to receive the Artsmark gold award, which recognises the exceptional quality of performing arts education at Colne Valley High School.
