Art and Design

All pupils study art and design up to the end of year 8 and may continue it as an option in year 9 and as an exam subject at GCSE and in the sixth form. Pupils are encouraged to learn new skills, experiment and develop their individual creativity. There is an emphasis on visual exploration, through drawing, photography, ICT, mixed media and cultural research. A craft club for juniors is held at lunch times, once a week and we have an artist in residence who works alongside groups and individuals sharing good practice and demonstrating expertise. Our students gain degree places and some then go on to follow successful careers in art and design. Workshops, gallery and drawing trips are organised for pupils who continue the subject to exam level.
