ART AND DESIGN
The overriding aim of the Art and Design department is to fully equip students with the necessary skills and tools needed to be able to express themselves in various creative responses. They will learn to think and act as artists, crafts people & designers, working imaginatively and intelligently. Students will learn to use various tools and resources to develop and stretch their artistic skills and subject knowledge.

Our Art rooms are open during breaks, and before and after school, to allow students wishing to improve their skills, or who enjoy the subject, to work alongside targeted Gifted & Talented students. We are regularly involved in whole school events such as designing and creating decorations for the Senior Citizens’ party, school productions and other events such as Book Mark competitions in collaboration with the library. We also collaborate with other schools as much as possible and an example of this enrichment would be an Artist in residence project which we completed in collaboration with Shaftesbury High School and local primary schools.
