Lead Creative School Project

Hendre Junior School has been chosen by the Arts Council of Wales to be a Lead Creative School

  • The project aims to develop creative learning through the arts. 

  • Attainment is improved through creativity.

  • Increase and improve arts experiences and opportunities in schools.

In the first year of this project, learners in years 5 and 6 worked with a graffiti artist to design and create a thematic mural in our school hall to commemorate the school's 25th anniversary.

In the second year, children in years 4 and 5 will be collaborating with a media and radio specialist to broadcast content created by themselves live on HJS Radio- the school's very own online radio station.  Click here to listen to our latest broadcasts.
