Michael Gove – 2014 Comments on Arts GCSEs

The comments made by Michael Gove, the then Secretary of State for Education, on 9 April 2014.

I am passionate about great art, drama, dance, music and design, and I am determined to ensure every child enjoys access to the best in our culture. I also want all schools to be able to nurture creative talent in every child.

That is why I am delighted that new high-quality qualifications in creative and cultural subjects will be made available to all students. They will now have the chance to take these new qualifications from September 2016.
