Arts Council England announces the latest schools achieving Artsmark Award status, including 31 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.
