Artsmark Alliance Platinum Award

Heathifeld received the specially created RSC Artsmark Alliance Platinum award in recognition of our outstanding commitment to cultural education, Shakespeare and live theatre over a number of years.

Artsmark Award is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. This is the highest accolade possible (equivalent to Artsmark Platinum).


RSC Lead Associate School

Heathfield is proud to be a Lead Associate School working with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Our aim is “enthusing staff and children with the wonder and challenge of Shakespeare across the curriculum, in all key stages and for all settings. Creating opportunity, developing talent and extending reach and impact together.”  We support Associate Schools in Nottingham including a local secondary school and special school. We work in partnership with the Theatre Royal and Concert Hall plus Nottingham Playhouse. Our pupils have exciting opportunities to work with Associate Artists creating art pieces, music and drama around Shakespeare’s texts. This year, Heathfield Shakespeare Ambassadors are giving peer support and inspiration exploring different Shakespeare texts across school.
