Mission Statement

The department strives to encourage, enable and inspire pupils to fulfil their creative potential by facilitating the development of practical, imaginative and expressive skills using a wide range of media, tools and techniques in two and three dimensions.

It seeks to stimulate an interest and curiosity in Art & Design from a range of different times and cultures, both from Western Europe and the wider world. The department strives to emphasise the fact that art making is an on-going process to which they can make a contribution.
