A school in Dagenham has been shortlisted for the national Creative School of the Year award.
Dagenham Park Church of England School will now compete against some of the best schools in the country at the 2018 TES School Awards.
This is the second consecutive year that the school has attended the awards. Last year they scooped the English Team of the Year award.
Headteacher Chris Ash said: “As a Church of England school we value the unique creative individuality of each and every one of our students.
“We intentionally plan our curriculum to allow the time, space and encouragement for our students to develop the moral, spiritual, intellectual, civic and moral virtues which form a solid and deeply rooted foundation for them to embrace their futures with confidence, resilience and creativity.”
