The Art department strives to ensure all students across the department achieve their potential and develop their passion for The Arts through the provision of a stimulating environment and a structured curriculum in which each student can excel. We will continue to build a department that ensures all students are provided with a range of skills to use as a means of expressing and communicating their ideas, giving form to their experiences. We will encourage in all students an independence of thought with a critical and aesthetic awareness, providing students with an appreciation and understanding of a wide variety of genres and styles from other times, places and peoples.
