Art and Design

The Art room is the place to explore personal ideas and take risks. It’s a happy, vibrant place with a buzz of creative energy running through it.

A diverse Art curriculum that includes sculpture and ceramics, printmaking, painting and drawing, photography and digital media, ensures we can find a discipline in which each student can excel. Art is taught in half class sizes to enable the very best one to one help from our specialist art teachers.

The department is extremely well equipped; consisting of three, light filled, purpose built studios, two kilns, a darkroom, computer suite and an extensive library. Artwork is exhibited throughout the school celebrating and showcasing the girls’ achievements.

Art GCSE, A Level and IB Visual Arts are popular choices and the department has an outstanding academic track record.
