Art, Ceramics & Photography

If we have a single purpose in the Art Department, it is to draw out the creativity in every pupil so that they find their own means of expression.

We want every pupil to become a confident independent learner, creative thinker and problem solver. Everyone’s learning experience is different, and so we share with them our own insights and passions – careful to offer guidance and suggestions rather than answers, and so prompting pupils to find their own way. Ultimately, we want to see pupils appreciate the visual world through sight and feelings, and to understand Art as an intellectual pursuit rather than a mere acquisition of skills.

Expertise in the Department includes Fine Art, Ceramics, Glass, Illustration, Photography and Textiles, allowing us to offer an unusually extensive range of GCSE and A-level options. Our facilities are equally impressive, and include a specialist ceramics studio and kiln, a photography studio, and a professional printing press. We are also able to accommodate those who want to work with textiles.
