Arts Award and Artsmark

Arts Award and Artsmark


Artsmark enables organisations to celebrate, strengthen, advocate and evaluate their provision for arts and culture. Compton Verney is proud to support schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture.

Having Artsmark status not only contributes to the cultural aspect of Ofsted’s requirements but demonstrates the value of arts and culture in your organisation, for your children and young people, and for your community. Get touch to see how we can support you.

Artsmark is Arts Council England’s nationally recognised flagship programme. For further information, please visit
