Lambeth Academy Receives £20,000 Grant from Restore The Music UK

Lambeth Academy is delighted to announce that the school has been awarded a full grant of £20,000 from RTM UK for the revitalising of the Music Department.  The Restore the Music UK Grant Programme delivers private funding to schools to facilitate the provision of music – instruments and tuition – to all children in state education across London, from primary through secondary school.  RTM raises money to rebuild school music departments in heavily deprived areas and make music accessible and available to all young people throughout their education. The RTM Grant Programme addresses the hole created by austerity and funding cuts, reestablishing access to music as a priority in every school. This month RTM UK awarded a whopping £280,000 to 18 schools nationwide. 

Ms Polly Moore, CEO of RTM UK said; 

"We are delighted to be welcoming Lambeth Academy in to the Restore the Music UK community and are very much looking forward to getting to know the school and its staff and students over the coming years." 

Mr Leon Wilson, Executive Principal said:

"We are grateful to RTM UK to be receiving one of their generous grants and we are excited to be working together to restore our music department and give access to music to all our students."

Ms Becky Haworth, Head of the Music Department said:

"It's really a dream come true.  We know music helps young people build confidence and explore their creativity and this grant will provide my department with the resources to make music at the academy an enriching experience for every child."

LAMBETH ACADEMY STUDENT LAUNCHES SELF-PUBLISHED GRAPHIC NOVEL

A Year 13 student at Lambeth Academy has wowed her teachers and peers by launching her very own graphic novel, which she wrote and illustrated as part of her Sixth Form studies.

Kaya Forde currently studies Art, Sociology and English Literature in the Sixth Form and is on track to graduate in June. She has successfully channelled her passion for Japanese Studies and Art into her EPQ investigation – an additional project which encourages students to study independently – culminating in this new story for young readers.

Titled ‘The Story of Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi’, her graphic novel is rooted in the ancient Japanese tale about two gods – the god of the sun (Amaterasu) and the god of the moon (Tsukuyomi) and an ancient feud that resulted in their separation. The myth explains why we do not see them together at the same time in the sky.

Royal Academy Selects Student Work for Summer Exhibition

A Year 8 student at Lambeth Academy, Imani Brieussel Dickson, is celebrating after her artwork was selected for the Royal Academy of Arts’ prestigious Young Artists’ Summer Show.

The annual art show is an opportunity for pupils aged 5-19 across the country to have their work exhibited online and on-site at the Royal Academy of Arts. To enter the competition, pupils, their teacher or their parent must submit a photo of the artwork they have created online. These submitted pieces are then put before a judging panel of art experts, who have the difficult task of selecting the stand-out works that will go on to feature in the exhibition.

To win her place in this year’s competition, talented young artist Imani submitted a photograph entitled ‘Diversity’. Describing her artwork, Imani said:

“My art piece is a photograph of my feet in my skin matching pointe shoes that I took with the self-timer on my mum's SLR camera. The matching brown skins ballet shoes only came out in 2018 and I think it represents the development in which opportunities have opened for all in the world of ballet.”
