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.
