Art & Design

pupils working on art project outside

The Art & Design Department enjoys an excellent reputation for both its results in public exams and the highly visible way in which it exhibits pupils’ work around the School.

The Department is committed to offering your son a stimulating environment for a wide range of art and design practices, in the belief that creativity is a vital part of a full education. The accommodation afforded by the Art & Design Centre is currently organised in one large open plan space roughly divided into two teaching areas.

A Morning in the Art Department

It has always been a great thrill to see the pupils perform and see everyone’s hard work come together in a wonderfully creative crescendo.
