ISA Arts supports the creative endeavours of pupils at ISA Members’ schools through an annual programme of events. Our competitions encourage students to showcase their artistic talents as a means of emboldening their creativity and building their confidence.

The fine and performing arts have long been valued by independent schools. We believe that they should continue to be nurtured and celebrated. As such, we are excited to be expanding year on year, hosting new events for pupils at our members’ schools to take part in.
