Spalding High School enjoyed a packed schedule of arts, drama, dance and music on Friday.

The Arts Mark Gold accredited school continued its commitment to celebrating and promoting high quality arts and cultural education by holding the popular ‘Fringe Friday’.

Students were treated to a preview of the forthcoming Sound of Music production, a pop choir, dance workshops and film shorts with popcorn.

Year 11 students entertained with compelling drama performances, whilst around the corridors buskers could be found alongside popup dance groups and theatre.

The art rooms were the scene for Bonfire Night-inspired ‘Guy’ making and the creative and potentially very messy ‘Action Painting’ inspired by artist Jackson Pollock.

Students produced painted marks whilst on the move, using roller skates and scooters amongst other things.

It was an ambitious schedule for a lunch hour, but worth the hard work and preparation as it was highly entertaining and inspiring.

Head of Art Liz Kelleher said: “It’s fantastic to see so much commitment to the Arts coming from the students themselves

“Fringe Friday always creates such a buzz around school and inspires students to get involved and have fun.”
