Curriculum Intent

The Art department has developed a curriculum which seeks to provide students with an inspiring but accessible journey in their Art education.


We aim to:

Build on the prior skills and knowledge of the students to enable them to become independent, resilient learners, and to be appreciative of culture and Art and Design.

Remove barriers to learning enabling students to safely build confidence, skills and knowledge and foster positive relationships with staff.

Ensure students are aware of opportunities and pathways available in the subject, through the departments collaboration with other schools, colleges and practitioners in the subject.

Develop skills and habits that will teach students to be flexible, creative and hard-working and so to enable them to adapt to the local labour market and the changing economy beyond.
