What is the Artsmark Award?

The Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. We support settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education.

In 2015, the programme was refreshed to align with School Improvement Plans and support core EBACC and STEM priorities, giving the curriculum breadth and balance.

Why Artsmark?

Build young people’s confidence, character and resilience through arts and cultural education.

Use Artsmark’s clear and flexible framework to embed creativity across your whole curriculum and use it to address school improvement priorities.

Celebrate your long-term commitment to cultural education with pupils, parents and your local community.

Who’s Artsmark for?

Artsmark is open to primary, secondary and special schools, pupil referral units, youth offending teams and sixth form colleges.

As Artsmark is an Arts Council England programme, only settings in England (including BFPO schools) are eligible to register.
