We aim to provide a warm, relaxed and exciting environment in which the pupils are encouraged to develop their own personal creative skills. Pupils are taught a variety of skills and techniques in the different disciplines, including; printmaking, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics etc.
This enables them to develop their own ideas from a starting point using sketch books culminating in a finished piece of work.
Pupils take great pride in their work, which is exhibited around the school; this also helps build their confidence and self-esteem.
All pupils have the opportunity to visit galleries in and around London, often taking part in workshops with practising artists.
Pupils will achieve an entry level certificate at the end of year 9 or 10; after which they will undertake a full or short course and exam in this subject.
Developing a knowledge and understanding of past and contemporary artists, craftspeople and designers is implicit in each unit of work.
