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.
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.
Artsmark is awarded at three levels; Silver, Gold and Platinum
Artsmark is flexible to the needs of individual settings and can fit around their planning cycles.
Most settings take up to two years to complete their Artsmark journey.
