The Art Department
We are a very successful department that thrives on new challenges, discovering contemporary and innovative artists/photographers and practicing a wide variety of techniques. We have four Art professionals that bring to the department a plethora of skills, experience and enthusiasm. We have three specialist Art rooms and one Year 12/13 private Art/Photography study area with a new Mac computer suite.
The department prides itself on offering an excellent array of pupil experiences, including many trips and visiting artists. Within our Fine Art specialisms, we practice printmaking, observational drawing, installation, painting, mixed media, textiles etc. We also offer A Level Photography which has brought to the department new technologies and exciting outcomes. At Easter, we offer an inspiring Art/Photography trip to Barcelona for Year 12/13 Students.
We aim to offer every pupil a broad knowledge of art skills and art history. We will continue to raise the profile of art and photography. and extend the ‘reach’ of the Art Department within the School and local community.
