Aims and Visions

    The Department aims to make art accessible to all pupils and to cultivate a sense of enjoyment and cultural awareness in all our students through the study of carefully planned and structured projects. Our aim is to foster the development of every pupil whilst encouraging and nurturing the desire in our students to produce work of high calibre.

      We teach a wide range of disciplines to students across all key stages which include drawing, painting, printmaking, photoshop manipulation, textiles and ceramics. All students are provided with the opportunity to follow a challenging, supportive and varied learning programme to suit their individual needs. Our students are given the opportunity to experience a wide range of themes, topics, media and processes that are underpinned by contextual investigation and understanding. At KS4 and KS5, students are also given the opportunity to experience works of art at first hand. We place great importance on educational visits and believe that these opportunities enhance and enrich students' learning whilst also inspiring them in their own practice. In previous years we have taken students to The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at UEA, The Castle Museum in Norwich, The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate Modern in London, as well as The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and the prestigious Curwen Print Studios in Cambridgeshire. In addition to local and national visits we have also had the privilege of taking some of our GCSE and Sixth Form students to Paris and Brussels on European residential visits.
