Art Enrichment

Art is for life. All our teaching is geared towards developing a love for Art which we hope will stay with our pupils for the rest of their lives.

In Art we provide opportunities for every pupil to develop their potential to the maximum in a learning environment that is both challenging and enjoyable.

Art Club is held most days during lunchtimes, and provides a valuable space where pupils can continue with class projects or develop their own individual programme of work – using a range of 2D and 3D materials.

Throughout the year, pupils are able to display work in themed exhibitions held around the school, where parents and other pupils are invited to engage and reflect upon their ideas. In addition to this, pupils’ artworks are published weekly in the ‘Art Sketchbook of the Week’ section in The Grapevine newsletter – which gives the wider school community an up to date view of the progress within the department. The pupils’ artworks also enliven the annual school magazine, The Coletine.

The Art department are involved in a number of co-curricular activities across the year including; ‘Get Creative’ practical workshops with St Paul’s Seniors, the Spring Fling charity auction dinners, the Christmas Fayre, House competitions and the Forest School programme.
