Art and Design

Children learn to appreciate and value images and artefacts across times and cultures, and learn to understand the contexts in which they were made.

In Art and Design, pupils reflect critically on their own and others' work, judging quality and meaning. They learn to think and act as artists, craftspeople and designers, working creatively and intelligently. They develop an appreciation of art, craft and design, and their role in the creative and cultural industries that enrich their lives. 

We aim to encourage the development of imagination, original thought and personal expression.

children learn a range of art and design skills

 

For exceptionally talented artists, we offer a portfolio club to help pupils preapre for art scholarships.  In 2016, our pupils were offered 8 art scholarships for secondary school.
