Artsmark makes a difference
Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme to enable schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Arts Council England and 10 regional Bridge organisations drive participation.
Any school, college or youth justice organisation in England can apply for Artsmark.
Artsmark is nationally recognised as demonstrating excellence in arts and cultural provision.
Holding Artsmark status demonstrates that your school or setting values the arts and culture.
It raises the public profile of a school or setting in the eyes of prospective students, their families and across the wider community.
Artsmark contributes to the cultural aspect of Ofsted’s requirement that a school promotes students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
