Our large and well equipped Art room is at the heart of the school and a hive of creative activity. The pupil teacher ratio enables us to offer a personalised programme of study which supports each student’s strengths and allows them to develop individually whilst working alongside others in the group.

The Art Department regularly organises trips to local art galleries and museums to broaden our pupils’ experience of art in the community.  The department designs and makes props for school productions, uses various craft techniques for seasonal celebrations and involves children in workshops given by visiting artists and crafts people.

Most pupils are encouraged to pursue Art and Design at Key Stage 4 to either GCSE or Entry Level, depending on their ability.  We have enjoyed a high level of success in GCSE in recent years and are constantly striving to obtain even better results for our pupils.
