Trystan Williams, Principal, said:

We at The Springfields Academy are extremely proud to be receiving the Artsmark Gold Award. This is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of our staff to raise the standards of education for all students in our establishment. Artsmark is more than simply a mark of distinction to us; taking part in the scheme has enabled us to develop our arts provision, and see the students who take part become more self-confident, engaged and excited about learning.”

Alan Davey, Chief Executive, Arts Council England, said:

Arts Council England believes that the earlier children are creatively inspired, the more likely they are to have a lifelong engagement with art – something that can transform lives and give young people a voice for their thoughts and feelings.”

The focus of Artsmark is to support Arts Council England achieve its goal of ensuring every child and young person has the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts by ensuring they have access to high-quality provision. Gaining an Artsmark at any level shows that an education setting is committed to the cultural development of the young people they work with. By offering public recognition of commitment to the arts by the settings and its staff, Artsmark supports them to raise their profile and continue improving their practice.
