Art, Design & Photography

Offering great opportunities to develop creativity

  • Encouraging creativity
  • Knowledge through design
  • Explore new skills

Welcome to Art, Design & Photography. We offer great opportunities for students to develop their creativity and demonstrate their knowledge through design. We encourage students’ creativity and imagination through visual, tactile and sensory experiences. In the early stages of Art, Design and Photography, each student will learn practical, technical and critical skills to communicate their ideas, feelings and meanings through their work.

 "We have a fantastic curriculum that provides a solid foundation for a wide range of artistic career paths. From the early stages, students will be encouraged to investigate art and develop their understanding."Mrs Blockley- Head of CreATE
