Art and design embodies human creativity and expression. The department has developed a curriculum that will engage, inspire and challenge students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment invent and create their own works of art and design.
As the students progress, they are taught to develop their thinking to allow a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
Students develop and reinforce their understanding and practical skills using a variety of materials, techniques and artists. Through experimentation pupils explore a selection of topics that allow them to think and develop creative ideas.
