In years 7 and 9 students study art for one hour a week. In year 8 students study for two hours.

Following the National Curriculum guidelines students are encouraged to take creative risks and to experiment with a wide range of media, processes and techniques as well as study a broad range of art, craft and design.

Students are aware of their “Working At” levels and targets and students are given every opportunity to reflect upon their artwork and progress.

The work of the students is displayed inside and outside of the department and also in the local community. The work is also celebrated through the awarding of credits, honour marks, Head Teacher’s Commendations and annual awards’ events.
