Art is delivered through the school by a dedicated team of specialists and we offer a broad and exciting curriculum in each year group. We aim to develop and nurture students’ understanding and enjoyment of art through carefully planned projects that support the development of artistic skills and processes.

In recent years we have introduced photography A level. This has proved so popular that we are now running an after school, voluntary GCSE. We have a dark room, ICT facilities and an artist-in-residence with her own studio in the expressive arts garden.

The department offers many opportunities for trips, including residential trips to Cornwall and Berlin.

For more detailed course information, please see the curriculum guides. Downloads to help with classwork, extended work or coursework, can be found on Frog.

Mr D Holding is Director of Art and Technology, Miss A Paisley is Head of Art. Other members of the team are Mr M Chanter Miss N Wiffill and Miss E Shakespeare.
