The BE OPEN foundation – a charitable organisation designed to foster creativity and innovation, has named the Arts Educational Schools London as one of the top five schools and colleges in the UK and one of the top 40 in Europe.
The latest report – A Review of Policy, Provision and Excellence in Arts Teaching Across Secondary Education in Europe, examines creative education in eight European countries and identifies the five strongest schools and/or colleges in each country.
BE OPEN’s aim in creating this report is to help define ‘excellence’ and recognise leadership in creative education. The ranking reveals that there are relatively few schools where one can gain a rich creative experience, however those which do recognise the potential of creative education are able to give proven argument for its approach, with pupils being more engaged and obtaining better results overall.
Jane Harrison, Principal says: “It’s fantastic to be recognised by the BE OPEN foundation, alongside such prestigious schools from within the UK and internationally. We believe that a well-rounded curriculum which incorporates the arts and creative study alongside a strong academic education gives our pupils the best preparation for their next step.”
All at ArtsEd are thrilled to have been recognised on this international platform and to be placed as a leading example of excellent provision of a creative education.
