Specialist Status

Description

Kings Langley School in Hertfordshire is currently applying for specialist arts status, adhering with the specialist-school programme's aim of all secondary schools having specialist status.

Chair of governors Frances Stickley visits Nower Hill High School, Harrow, which has held specialist arts status for five years. Frances discovers how the arts now permeate throughout the entire curriculum at the school.

Maureen Chappell, the arts college co-ordinator at Nower Hill, describes how establishing projects in the community has been the most challenging aspect of specialist status.
