Heads for the Arts is a group of Headteachers who represent highly successful Secondary Schools across England.

The Schools we represent cover inner city, rural and suburban communities.  Some are multi-cultural, some are not; some serve affluent areas; some the most socially deprived communities in the country.

What we have in common is a track record of success that is underpinned by strong Arts provision.

  • We as a group passionately believe that formal Arts education should be a core entitlement for all students up to the age of 16.
  • We want formal Arts qualifications recognised as part of the English Baccalaureate Certificate.
  • We want formal Arts qualifications to be a performance measure within league tables and statutory expectation of Ofsted Inspection regimes.
