Arts Award Discover and Explore

We are proud to announce that we are an Arts Award Centre for Discover and Explore levels.

Arts Award Discover 


Arts Award Discover is the introductory award open to children and young people aged up to 25.


To achieve Discover, children and young people discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end. Arts Award Discover will usually take about 20 hours to complete.


We currently are sending through children in Year 4 to achieve this award as part of their art PPA. Certificates should be with the children by the end of Year 4.


You can find out more about this and the other awards on arts award website:

Arts Award Explore


This award is an Entry Level 3 qualification on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). It is the perfect stepping stone from our introductory award, Arts Award Discover, to the Level 1 qualification, Bronze Arts Award.


Anyone aged up to 25 can take part in Arts Award. Arts Award Explore is designed for ages 7 plus. Young people collect their arts experiences in an Explore arts log as they go along, recording what they find and enjoy. Arts Award Explore will usually take about 25 hours to complete.


We are currently sending through all students who participate in the Art Exhibition workshops. The certificates and logbooks should be with the participating children by the end of the academic year (2016).
