Challenge. Cherish. Inspire.

Former pupil inspires current pupils!

12th June 2017

Our Manor Arts Council were extremely lucky today to spend an hour with Julia Roderick. Not only is she The Director of Participation at The City of London Sinfonia but also a Manor Prep old girl! 
Julia clearly loves her job, which involves working in The Arts, promoting the CLS, and quickly enthused our pupils with her passion for promoting The Arts.
Did you know? 
There are 1.8 million jobs in Arts Industries and 65,200 businesses in Arts Industries contribute £77 million to the country’s economy.
Our Arts Ambassadors were soon discussing how to create a Manor Arts Theatre and created a whole new arts organisation with enough jobs to keep the whole of Abingdon busy!
Thank you Julia!
Mrs Sue Side
Head of Art
