Matt Watling, Principal at Humberston Academy, said: “Receiving the Artsmark Silver Award is a testament to the amazing work by our students and teachers in our art department.


“The Arts in our school is a significant part of life at Humberston Academy, and our students receive a world-class education that is second to none.
