PUPILS and staff at Horningsham Primary School are celebrating after receiving a prestigious Artsmark Award from Arts Council England.

The school is "delighted" to have achieved the highest level of Platinum for bringing arts and culture to life in the school.

The school said: "It is unusual for such as small school to have been awarded Platinum and we are thrilled. In order to become an Artsmark school, Horningsham had to develop our arts and culture provision to achieve a broad and balanced curriculum."

"This was achieved by creating an overall plan that was committed to and delivered across the whole school."
