Artsmark and Arts Award

Artsmark – bringing learning to life through arts and culture

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England.

  • Artsmark provides a clear framework for teachers to plan, develop and evaluate arts, culture and creativity across the curriculum. 
  • Schools are supported throughout their Artsmark journey by a regional network of Bridge organisations, providing training, advice, practical teaching resources and introductions to leading cultural organisations in your area. 
  • Schools are awarded Silver, Gold or Platinum, based on their achievements.
  • Artsmark has a common sense application process that is light on paperwork and flexible to each school.
