‘Inspiring creative, curious and confident minds’

Rationale

In Art, our curriculum has been designed to cultivate inquisitive and observant individuals who express themselves visually through creative exploration.  We aim to develop our students’ cultural capital through the study of a diverse range of artists, craft persons and designers that will inspire and engage our students. Our curriculum is planned and sequenced in such a way that builds confidence and resilience as students become more proficient in a wide range of media, techniques and processes. Each year, the curriculum provides students with increasing opportunities to take risks with their work and make decisions in the creative process that are personal to the individual. Into key stage 5, our curriculum is designed to challenge conventions and facilitate the work of our students as they develop into independent artists.
