Siobhan Fogarty, Head of Creative Arts at Sackville School in Kent, was shortlisted for the prize for Outstanding Drama Education Resource at this year’s Music & Drama Education Awards.
Ms Fogarty was selected as a finalist for the award for her Horror School Scheme of Work for Year 8 Drama. With the framework students brave a haunted school together to learn about the horror genre and develop their drama skills. It also includes YouTube clips and a “sinister” soundtrack to help create excitement and set the atmosphere in lessons.
The Music & Drama Education Awards recognise outstanding achievement in music and drama education, and the category in which Ms Fogarty was shortlisted celebrates an educational resource that has made an important contribution to the body of resources available for drama teachers and learners.
Justin Foster-Gandey, Headmaster at Sackville School said: “We are super proud and must add that shortlisting for this award is well deserved as Ms Fogarty has worked tirelessly for many years at Sackville School bringing exciting and inclusive drama lessons to our pupils. Ms Fogarty has always gone that extra 50 miles to achieve excellence and originality in all her work here at Sackville school.”
