Artsmark and the Almeida

Artsmark is the Arts Council England’s creative quality standard for schools and educational settings. It has been designed by schools, for schools, to align with School Improvement Plans and support core EBACC and STEM priorities, giving the curriculum breadth and balance. The Almeida is committed to providing a range of opportunities for schools to engage with our productions and gain insights into the theatre-making process.

Our offer provides schools at any stage of their Artsmark journey with the opportunity to enhance their provision of drama across the whole curriculum and engage their students with high quality cultural experiences.

How the Almeida can support your student’s Artsmark journey:

  • Our Schools Offer – Secondary schools in Islington, and surrounding boroughs can apply to take part in our school offer to receive a year-long package of activity for free.  Schools can also undertake Bronze Arts Award as part of the offer.
  • Offstage Career Workshops – Meet members of the Almeida’s Technical Team, receive a backstage tour, and find out how a show makes its way onto our stage by taking part in a theatre production workshop.
  • Whole School CPD – For schools wishing to develop a whole school cross-curricular approach to teaching drama we can develop bespoke CPD training for up to 20 members of staff. This training can take place over a half day or a full day with costs starting from £300.

For more information on how we can support you in achieving your Artsmark please contact our Participation team by email or by phone 020 7288 4914.
