Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it's creative, valuable and accessible. The Island Learning Trust has been providing Arts Awards for several years and Minster-in-Sheppey Primary School is an Arts Award Centre with Mrs Hall as the trained adviser.

Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award. We offer the first two levels which are named ‘Discover’ and ‘Explore’.  Find out more information on their website: www.artsaward.org.uk
