Art and Design occupies a unique place within the school curriculum. Learning in Art provides ways of perceiving and understanding the world in a wholly visual context. The ability to understand and make sense of what we see is essential in a world that relies increasingly on direct visual communication. We encourage the enjoyment of Art & Design through exploring ideas and responding in a manner that is creative and personal.
Pupils and students engage in stimulating and challenging tasks carried out in a creative and supportive learning environment that fosters independent enquiry. We aim to identify and develop the natural abilities of pupils by creating opportunities for their personal growth through investigating and developing ideas, experimenting with media and techniques, and realising their intentions in work of a practical nature.
