Hyndburn Park students enjoying their Art & Design activity as part of their Arts Award Discover programme.

So far this year, Rhyddings has helped hundreds of local primary school children gain their first ever nationally-recognised qualification – the Arts Award Discover.

Most recently we have had three class groups from Hyndburn Park Primary in Accrington who have been in touch to give us feedback on their music, drama and art sessions.

“The children loved all three sessions. Each day was very interactive and this allowed the children to be creative.

They especially loved the drama day and because of wearing masks and acting out with actions (rather than speaking) they had lots of confidence to be creative, silly and have fun!

It was brilliant for the children  to be given the opportunity to try new instruments too! Not only that, but they loved presenting their pieces on an amazing stage with both light and sounds effects.

The sessions have been absolutely brilliant! The children and adults have had a really great time.

  • Well resourced
  • Children had great relationships with staff leading sessions
  • High expectations from all staff members
  • Children wanting to go each week and try a new skill
  • Each enterprise skill linking in with the previous week
  • AND the juice and fresh croissants were a BONUS! 😊

OVERALL, it was brilliant and I’m so glad our children got the opportunity to benefit from it. I’d recommend it all over again.
