Our Awards

Arts College
Specialist School Status

Arts Colleges will raise standards of achievement and the quality of learning in their chosen area of the arts for all their students, leading to whole school improvement in performance. Arts Colleges will nurture within their students a lifelong passion for, and appreciation of, the arts as both participants and discriminating audiences.  They will be inclusive by promoting enjoyment of many different artistic forms and encouraging participation in a wide variety of artistic activity for all students. There are three broad areas of the Arts - performing, visual and media. Kings Langley has chosen three specialist areas for their 'Arts' focus mainly on Art, Graphics and Music.
