Art and Design


Staff are keen to make lessons stimulating, interesting, interactive and enjoyable by providing a supportive and creative environment. Success and achievement are celebrated at every opportunity and we award an 'Artist of the Month' prize. The department organises trips to local galleries and places of interest. Residential trips are available and pupils have the opportunity to work with a professional artist.
