OUR CURRICULUM

Art

Art and Design has the capabilities of stimulating student's creativity and imagination, offering experiences of the visual, tactile and sensory. The aim is to enable each student to use colour, form, shape, line, texture, pattern and composition linked with different materials, processes and ideas to communicate what they see, feel and think.

The Department aim:

  • To provide students with a positive, safe, exciting and visually stimulating learning environment within which they can produce and develop independent, creative work of a personal nature and make a positive contribution to the school community.

  • To provide students with the freedom to explore and develop ideas in a range of media, recording from first hand observation, experience and imagination.

  • To give students an insight into the world of Artists, Craftspeople and Designers from different social, economic, historic and cultural backgrounds; and allow students to make informed judgements regarding works of Art.

  • To raise the standard of students performance across Key stages 3 and 4 delivering challenging, relevant and stimulating Programmes of study, which build in opportunities for all students to enjoy and achieve within the subject setting their own targets and making good progress regardless of ability.
