We have a broad and vibrant Art and Design curriculum across all key stages. The purpose of Art and Design is to stimulate creativity and imagination. It provides a visual, tactile and sensory experience, and a special way of understanding and responding to the world. Through Art and Design our pupils are able to communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes.
Art and Design activities include drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, 3D, model making and textiles, and graphic design.
In addition to our creative curriculum we celebrate Art and Design through the many displays around the school, entering Art and Design competitions, exhibiting pupils’ work in galleries and organising visits to see exhibitions.
In Years 7 to 11 pupil progress is also measured through creative tasks, Assessment For Learning strategies and self/peer assessment.
