Case Study - Sawston Village College | Award Nomination 2016

Lesley Morgan, Arts Development Manager
Sawston Village College
 
Practice:
Lesley has led the school's collaborative journey to Platinum Arts Award status in several ways. Most notably, Lesley led a community-centred multi-arts project to commemorate WWI locally, enabling pupils to undertake original historical research with Anglia Ruskin University, the local history society, a local artist, film maker and others. The final outcome was a commemorative sculpture, a music-dance-drama performance piece, exhibition, book and film. Lesley has also led on the establishment of a pupil-run community cinema, Sawston Cinema, in a former cinema building on the school site.
 
Impact:
Young people involved in the initiatives led by Lesley have been able to gain recognition for their efforts through completing the Arts Award, and some have used supporting cinema screenings as part of their DofE award. Keen pupil filmmakers are also able to introduce and screen their films to community audiences. Pupils have enjoyed having the opportunity to work with professional creative practitioners. Approximately 150 young people were involved in the WWI project, and about 40 young people are regularly involved in film-making and screenings across two after-school clubs.
