Beaford Arts

Arts Award

Beaford Arts is an Arts Award supporter organisation and Arts Award Centre. We have trained advisors who can deliver and assess Arts Award in your setting. We can offer children and young people opportunities to achieve certification in Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver or Gold level Arts Award, accredited through Trinity College London.

Here is a film about Arts Award that we were involved in featuring our education leader Caroline Preston and some of our Explore and Gold students:   

Take Part in the Arts:
