Art and Design is a vehicle of communication and self-expression, which encourages the ability to observe, select and interpret with feeling and understanding.
We aim to foster pupils’ natural enthusiasm for visual and other forms of expression in a non-threatening atmosphere, which is essential if pupils are to develop a sense of self-discipline and are open to new ideas and stimuli.
