Why Artsmark?

Artsmark helps schools to demonstrate certain elements of the Ofsted framework and Teaching Standards. Completing your Artsmark journey demonstrates a schools' commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum, as well as contributing to fulfilling SMSC requirements.

Artsmark is also a great way to evidence how your school is providing meaningful careers provision, as well as linking directly to many of the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Why Hastings Museum?

Hastings Museum & Art Gallery is a local museum with a global collection that inspires people and connects communities.

We are committed to community engagement, partnership working and promoting lifelong learning.

Learning with the museum is an immersive experience - we can offer cross-curricular workshops (incorporating History, Literacy and STEAM) in our galleries, online or as a blend of both approaches. Our offer is suitable for learners from KS1 - KS3.

As your Arts Mark partner, we can:

  • Offer workshops for staff and/or pupils in school
  • Offer Loan Box and Object Handling training as CPD for teaching and support staff
  • Offer board of governors and the senior leadership team training
  • Co-create bespoke, cross-curricular Arts Award programmes for Discover and Explore levels
  • Proof-read your Statement of Impact
  • Support with bid writing to leverage additional funds

Children and young people work with museum professionals, artists and real historical objects to explore art forms of their choosing.

Cost:

Work with artists, museum professionals and museum workshops are free of charge to schools in the Hastings Borough. For Arts Award projects, schools can expect a contribution of up to 50% from the museum towards the cost of Explore or Discover certification.
