Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England.
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 practical and valuable tool for enriching a school’s arts provision whatever the starting point.
Artsmark has a common sense application process that is light on paperwork and flexible to each school. Find out more about the process, timeline for completing the award and how Artsmark works.
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.
