Art and Design

The art and design learning area has a strong ethos of working together, respect and challenge for all. 

Through exploring the world around us and our place within it, viewing even the most everyday items with wonder and trying multiple ways to express ourselves, we develop a strong visual language which can be applied across the curriculum.

Schemes of work are designed to uncover creative potential by providing a wide range of activities including drawing, painting, 3D, printing, mixed media and digital technologies.  Art is offered as a GCSE option choice.

The art and design learning area aims to:

  • Explore imagination and its application in different contexts
  • Support pupils to record and develop their ideas
  • Explore different artists, craftspeople and cultures
  • Enhance and develop pupils’ visual vocabulary and practical skills
