We are a successful and thriving art department with hundreds of pupils being taught to a high standard every week.

“The man who makes no mistakes, does not usually make anything”
Edward Phelps

Pupils can expect to be taught drawing, painting, printing, 2D mixed media, digital media, photography as well as many more crafts. The art department consists of two spacious naturally lit, fully equipped art rooms.

Staff adopt the approach of developing growth mindsets within art and offer an inclusive curriculum based on research into breaking down barriers to learning within art.

Pupils are taught using a wide variety of teaching and learning techniques which will vary depending upon the age and ability of the pupils. GCSE classes are based around the idea of independence and we achieve successful results every year. The progress made from different starting points in art is good, ensuring that all pupils are able to achieve.

The behaviour and ethos in the art department is one of excitement, productivity, creativity and genuine passion for art from staff and pupils alike. Every pupil has the opportunity to shine in our art department regardless of ability.
