Welcome to the Art and Design Department!
As a department we ensure that pupils are comfortable and safe in their environment and ready to engage in their learning journey.
We are keen to meet our learners’ needs by providing interesting and engaging units of work.
The rationale for art & design within a school setting is directly related to the nature of the arts in life. While each arts form has its own specific value and rationale it can provide a rich source of experiences and understandings that cannot be gained in any other way. Pupils who participate in the subject of art & design will have a richer experience within their school life.
As a department we ensure learning targets are sufficiently challenging. We strive for identifying best practice in supporting pupils to identify their barriers to learning and overcome these.
We encourage our young people to create, express and communicate ideas. This is achieved by devising interesting units of work.
Our learners have the chance to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world of art & design and to reach their full potential within our department.
