Art & Design
Our Art and Design curriculum builds upon the National Curriculum, and is carefully constructed to enable pupils to experience a range of media, artists and genres whilst building up a progression of skills, knowledge and techniques. Our approach incorporates local studies and opportunities for creativity and imagination, to enable pupils to develop a sense of local and personal identity.
All pupils have their own sketchbooks to practise techniques and produce finished products. These move up through the school with them.

We worked with The Hepworth, Wakefield, taking part in the first 'School Prints' project, a revival of a project from the 1940s. The pictures below capture some of the moments from this important and engaging experience for our pupils:
