From as early as Year 4, we aim to inspire the next generation of artists and designers, with dynamic schemes of work packed full of exciting activities that will build skills, as well as motivate and enhance students’ enjoyment of this subject area. We achieve this by offering a particularly broad range of disciplines; for example, Year 8 students not only attend general art and design classes, they also receive dedicated lessons in graphic design and metals; further to this, in Year 9 our girls study ceramics and textiles.
At GCSE level, we are also able to offer three art-based subjects to our students. These comprise of Fine Art, Photography and Textile Design. The curriculum is again exciting with extensive and innovative delivery methods, where we challenge students to aim for the highest levels, as well as differentiating to provide a caring and empathetic environment for all.
