Artsmark: Latest Schools Announced

Arts Council England announces the latest schools achieving Artsmark Award status, including 13 in the North West.

Curious Minds is delighted to congratulate the very latest group of North West schools to achieve Artsmark status.

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools; accredited by Arts Council England and awarded to schools which actively champion high quality art and cultural education within their curriculum. Culture and creativity increases pupils’ confidence, critical thinking, communication and literacy skills, improving attainment and bringing core subjects to life.

In order to achieve Artsmark status, these schools have demonstrated their commitment to incorporating art and culture into every student’s life and learning, as well as showing ambitious plans for the future. They will now continue their journey with the support of Curious Minds.

Over 570 schools across the region are on their Artsmark journey, either having received their award or working towards it.

The 13 most recently levelled North West schools are:

  • Formby High School, Sefton – Platinum
  • Sandbach School, Cheshire East – Platinum
  • Hopwood Community Primary School, Rochdale – Silver
  • Intack Primary School, Blackburn with Darwen – Silver
  • Meadowbank Primary School, Stockport – Silver
  • Park Road Sale Primary School, Trafford – Silver
