Art & Design


Art courses are structured to suit personal learning needs and encourage pupils to develop their talents and creativity to the full.

Working as individuals, groups or whole classes, the study involves drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, ICT and a little textile work. We use books, the internet, film, slides, postcards and resource cards to show artists’ work and visit art galleries to view relevant exhibitions whenever possible. Each student also keeps a personal sketchbook.

Extra Art
Students may work in the art rooms at lunchtime and after school on work linked to class and homework (KS3) or coursework (KS4/A-level). At these times teachers or older students can offer advice and students can use materials which may be unavailable at home.
