Art & Design is concerned with developing skills, knowledge, experiences, creative thinking and problem solving.  

In an enjoyable, supportive and disciplined atmosphere, pupils will experience a wide variety of practical Expressive Art & Design based

projects, as well as the study of artists and designers and their working methods.

Pupils will have access to a broad range of materials, media, technologies & disciplines including: pencil, paint, pastel, ink, collage, clay, sculpture, jewellery/body adornment, architecture, lighting & other product design, graphics, photography and computer.

Tasks have flexibility and continue to evolve and change and often can relate to pupils personal interests.
