Henry Beaufort achieves an Artsmark Gold Award

Henry Beaufort has just been awarded the Gold Award. This means that we are recognised as having outstanding arts provision across the school. In order to gain this award we had to put together an audit of all the experiences we offer our students in the arts. We also had to host a visit by a representative of the Arts Council.

Artsmark is a national award that accredits quality arts education in England. It is Arts Council England’s flagship programme to audit, celebrate and develop high-quality arts education in schools, further education colleges, and youth justice settings. It is developed in partnership with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the Department of Education, and OfSTED.

Henry Beaufort has just been awarded the Gold Award, This means that we are recognised as having outstanding arts provision across the school.  In order to gain this award we had to put together an audit of all the experiences we offer our students in the arts. We also had to host a visit by a representative of the Arts Council.  The representative looked at the Art, Drama, Music and Dance departments as well as English, Media, Technology and Maths. During the visit they spoke to staff and a panel of students who talked passionately about some of their experiences.

We were judged on our curriculum provision for the arts and the extra-curricular opportunities we offer. Henry Beaufort was found to be well above the minimum requirement for the quantity of extra-curricular activities and particularly successful in attracting boys who statistically are less likely to participate.


We are very proud to have received this recognition for the success of our Arts provision at Henry Beaufort and we are grateful to all the staff and students involved in putting together our bid.
