What is Artsmark?

‘Developed by Arts Council England, Artsmark is a national award that recognises schools’ achievements in the arts and the quality of its creative and cultural provision. It is awarded at three levels – Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Artsmark offers a rigorous process and high quality resources to support ambitious school improvement. An artsmark award provides strong evidence of how a school is meeting its social, moral, cultural and spiritual requirements.’
