Art and design stimulates creativity and imagination. It provides students with visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a unique way to express, explore and respond to the world around us.

We aim to build the skills of our students through a variety of activities which will enhance their learning at the same time as building their confidence. The skills they learn will also be of benefit in other subject areas.

Students will also explore the work and meanings of the work produced by various artists, craftspeople and designers from different cultures past and present in relation to their projects.

Understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts have the power to enrich our personal and public lives.

The art rooms are open at lunchtime for enjoying art or for support. Extra art or support is offered after school throughout the week; all are welcome.
