Art

We have a modern, purpose-built Art Department that includes a fully-equipped painting and design studio with adjoining ceramics workshop and foyer gallery. This is available to all children from the age of four, as well as separate classroom facilities, particularly in the Junior Department.

The art curriculum is layered with the essential building blocks of formal art teaching interleaved with an evolving array of exciting project based work. Projects are planned to further enhance the learning that the children are engaged in in their IPC work, to reflect current trends in the art world and to build on the stimuli of artists workshops and visits. There is an overriding emphasis on the process of creativity and all pupils are encouraged to feel confident about their work and progress.
