Students will also be creating a community garden over the next year in collaboration with Bow Arts. It is expected to include a pavilion. 

“At Riverside, we believe students have the right to a rounded education; a rich curriculum including music, art, drama and sport,” said Andrew Roberts, Headteacher of Riverside Secondary School.

“We are particularly proud of our cultural arts education and the partnerships we have forged to make this possible over the past few years.”

The school will be working on it’s Arts Hub which sees them create art trails, concerts and events with other local schools throughout the year. These include George Carey, Thames View, Riverside Primary, Greatfields Secondary and Riverside Bridge SEN school. 

A number of trips are also lined up for pupils, including days out to the Royal Albert Hall and the Globe Theatre for the Royal Shakespeare Company. 

“I applaud Riverside School for their focus on culture and their ambition for students to be as creative as possible,” said Councillor Evelyn Carpenter. 

“I am sure that the students will engage with, and benefit enormously from, the great range of opportunities that are given to them by the school.”
