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.
