Bring learning to life through arts and culture

Artsmark has been designed by schools, for schools, to align with School Improvement Plans and support core EBACC and STEM priorities, giving the curriculum breadth and balance.

As well as recognising schools that are making the arts come alive, the Artsmark award is a valuable tool for enriching a school’s arts provision, whatever the starting point.

The Artsmark programme has a common sense application process that is light on paperwork and flexible to each school. It provides schools with access to enviable networks of leading cultural organisations that will enable them to use the arts to engage and develop happy, self-expressed and confident young people and inspire teachers.

Any school can apply. Our area already has 19% of schools signed up to Artsmark and this continues to grow.
