Courses, Classes and Workshops



Sage Gateshead support schools to achieve their Artsmark Award.

Awarded by Arts Council England and designed by schools, the Artsmark award helps schools to deliver a high quality arts and cultural education and provides an excellent way to demonstrate this. Artsmark gives children and young people the opportunity to create, compose, and perform, gain knowledge and understanding, and to visit experience and participate in extraordinary work.

OFSTED requires that the Arts must be used strategically to address developmental targets and pupil outcomes, through proven strategic use of the arts across the whole school with evidence of its impact and success. Artsmark is able to lend this evidence to demonstrate provision for the spiritual moral, social and cultural developments of its pupils, substantiated in School Improvement Plans (SIPs), School Development Plans (SDPs), or similar documents.
