The Art Department

Art and Design is not just a subject to learn, but an activity that you can practise with your hands, your eyes, your whole personality

Quentin Blake, children’s illustrator

Our vibrant Art department encourages pupils to think critically and reflectively about art and design and to use their imagination and intuition when producing art work. The support they are given allows the pupils to gain competence and confidence in order for them to take risks and experiment with ideas, materials, tools and techniques and ultimately produce dynamic works of art. They also develop their understanding of the different roles, functions, audiences and consumers of art and design practice.
