Artsmark Gold Award

Today we celebrated being awarded the Artsmark Gold! Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme which enables schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional Bridge organisations drive participation. Less than 10% of schools in England have been awarded an Artsmark. Sherborne House has been awarded the Artsmark Gold. As most schools hope to achieve Artsmark initially and then spend three years preparing for ArtsMark Gold, we are thrilled to have achieved Artsmark Gold straight away. To achieve Artsmark, we had to undergo a rigorous application process, followed by a validation visit from a professional arts consultant. We were assessed on many areas of our provision including arts in the curriculum, extra-curricular arts activities, how we work with artists and arts organisations and how well our arts provision impacts on staff development and the wider community. Will Champion of Coldplay donated a Triple Platinum Disc in congratulations of this fantastic achievement, pictured with Sophie K, Head Girl and Tanay V Head Boy. We hope you share our pride in being nationally recognised for our arts and cultural provision. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff and students in making this possible.
