Facilities & Staff

With 3 well qualified and inspirational teachers, all of whom are still practising artists, we provide our pupils with opportunities to explore the world of thoughts and feelings and to express their ideas in ways which are powerful alternatives to the written word.

The Art Department is accommodated throughout the school. There are two Art rooms in the Senior School and a computer suite dedicated to digital artwork, creation experimentation and development of ideas. There is an additional Art Room in the Junior School.

The Art Department also has a Gallery in school where a host of pupils and visiting artists’ work can be viewed. A virtual gallery is also included in the main Gallery space which shows work from all year groups giving everyone the opportunity to show and celebrate success.
