The Art department’s main philosophies are to develop visual skills through direct observation. We offer differentiated work and options for outcomes to guarantee success for all. Students are encouraged to develop independent and original ideas and this is reflected in the range of outcomes they produce. Paintings, sculpture, print and mixed materials/media are offered for all Key Stages.
We aim to offer a positive, lively and creative environment. Teachers are trained specialists and practitioners who are all fully involved in the planning and delivery of the curriculum for all Key Stages. Students are provided with sketchbooks and are encouraged to present their work creatively – to record observations, research, experimentation, development of ideas, reviews and evaluations.
In Years 7-9 students study a range of topics that constantly introduce new skills and build upon prior knowledge.

- Natural Environment (Mix media collage)
- 3D Sea creature clay relief tile
- Narrative (Set Design)
- Narrative (lino outcome)
