Curriculum overview

  • Years 7-8: All students take one lesson per week of art, exploring topics such as Natural Forms, Portraiture and art from Africa, Mexico and more. These topics help students develop a variety of techniques.
  • Years 9-11: students are able to choose to take options in Art or Photography. Students who choose these options have 2 lessons per week.

Extra-curricular projects

As well as opportunities for students to hone their skills and work in our art classrooms after the end of lessons, we also take part in a range of exciting projects including creating props and scenery for our productions, and more!

Recently, we took part in the centenary commemorations of the Battle of the Somme. Students from Years 7, 8 & 9 took part in an art workshop to create tiles commemorating the Battle of the Somme. They researched local people who died in the battle, and the finished tiles became part of the Path of the Remembered. You can see the tiles at https://www.1418now.org.uk/somme100/gallery
