Awarded by Arts Council England, designed by schools, the new Artsmark award aims to help schools deliver a high quality arts and cultural education and provide an excellent way to demonstrate this. Across the country, Artsmark is rewarding more and more schools for championing arts and culture. Artsmark schools gain access to exceptional resources, as well as networks of the country’s most treasured cultural organisations, helping them develop and strengthen their arts provision.

At Purley Oaks we believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore and develop their creative skills. We are very proud to have been awarded the Silver Artsmark in recognition of our strong and varied cultural curriculum, which has enabled our pupils to develop and strengthen their artistic skills and knowledge.
