Art and Design


The Art Department encourages the individual talents of all its pupils in drawing painting, printmaking, sculpture, pottery and 3D design.

Key Stage 3

During Key Stage 3 pupils explore all aspects of critical Art studies ranging from medieval to 20th century Art.

Exhibitions of Art and Design are always on display in the department, and around the school premises.

The department has a strong tradition of Arts liaison with its feeder schools and organises a Year 6 Arts Day in the summer term.

Key Stage 4

At Key Stage 4 the subject is optional but many of the students undertake very successful GCSE courses in Painting and Drawing and in Photography. There is a suite of rooms specifically designated to digital and black/white photography.
