Our high quality art and design curriculum will motivate, engage and inspire the pupils. This will give them the skills and techniques to be creative with a wide range of tools and media.

An awareness of colour, shape, texture and proportion are developed alongside ideas and feelings. The study of a wide range of artist, craftspeople and designers provide the pupils with a knowledge that can be built upon. They are encouraged to express themselves and be confident in their work. Pupil’s can be supported at home by being encouraged to discuss the art around them. They need the opportunities to be creative with the family at home.
