Approach to Teaching


We aim to provide a stimulating and comfortable learning environment that encourages students to take risks, discover artistic strengths and express themselves visually with confidence and individuality.

We equip students with a broad range of practical artistic skills necessary for them to be independent and solve their own challenges.

Art6

Key Stage 3 content (Year 7 -9)

Pupils explore and develop their creative skills using a wide range of media, both traditional and modern, producing artwork in response to a variety of stimuli.

We provide an atmosphere in which the confidence and enthusiasm of the student can flourish. We appreciate and value student’s individual responses and they are encouraged to develop awareness of and respect for the art of others.

Year 7 Project - Toy and Teddy bear drawing project

Year 8 Project - Jungle Painting Project inspired by Artist Henri Rousseau

Year 9 project - Portrait Painting inspired Artist Chuck Close.
