Pupils are taught the knowledge, skills and understanding of Art and Design within their lessons including Drawing, Painting, Printing, Sculpture, Ceramics, Digital Photography, Film Photography and Animation. Homework is a very important part of the curriculum and there are many Art Clubs and competitions for pupils to join.
At GCSE and Advanced Level pupils can choose to study Art or Photography: the Art course explores a range of working practices and the Photography includes dark room, digital and video methods. Pupils have the opportunity to participate in gallery and museum visits to support their studies.
