Artsmark award celebrates schools that champion the arts and strive for excellence in their provision.
The award has been redesigned for the 2015/16 academic year by schools for schools to make it more relevant to the changing educational landscape and, as such, it seeks to help schools strike a balance in meeting EBACC and STEM priorities.
As well as recognising schools that make the arts come alive, the Artsmark award is a useful, practical and valuable tool for enriching a school’s arts provision and ensuring the myriad of benefits brought by the arts are infused across the curriculum and the school community. It provides schools with access to high quality and practical resources and enviable networks that will enable them to use the arts to inspire learning and harness the power of the arts in developing happy, successful and confident young people.
Any school, college or youth justice organisation can apply for Artsmark. Find out more about who can apply and which settings Artsmark is not applicable to.
