Our Vision

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. We have a high-quality art and design programme that will engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they will be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Pupils will produce creative work, explore their ideas and record their experiences becoming more proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques. Be able to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. They will also learn about great artists, craft makers and designers, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.
