Art & Design

The Art and Design Department gives all pupils the opportunity to use a wide range of media. Pupils enjoy learning new skills and techniques as they creatively explore various topics within our areas of learning.

 

The building and refurbishment of our extremely well resourced Art Suite was completed in 2015. The G. Hampton Art & Design Suite consists of 2 spacious classrooms complete with full ceramic production facilities and a Digital Studio equipped with iPads, P.C.s and Design Software. We also have a spacious entrance hallway which has lots of display space for the exhibition of our pupils work.
