Does your school champion the arts and strive for excellence? If so it could be eligible for an Artsmark award.

Artsmark is awarded by Arts Council England to schools and education settings who actively champion arts and culture. It is based on the belief that every child should have the opportunity to create, compose, and perform, gain knowledge and understanding, and to visit, experience and participate in extraordinary work.
