Welcome to our Schools Hub page!
We've been hugely inspired by the work of amazing teachers, pupils and sector experts that demonstrates the difference the arts can make to people's lives. In particular, we've been exploring how the arts and creativity can bring people together, break down barriers, encourage empathy and inform the way that we view the world around us.
Please browse our resources and use the 'contact' tab to get in touch with us about how we can support Arts Award and Artsmark.
See our Hunting for Treasure resource! We’re continuing to ask how the arts can be used to celebrate positive values in schools - join us in our search!
