The Art and Design department offers a wide range of meaningful learning experiences during which learners will be physically, socially and emotionally engaged. As a result of their experiences in Art and Design learners’ well-being, self-esteem and resilience will be nurtured, in turn enhancing their self-confidence. The Art Department also fosters and builds creative and critical thinking skills which aid learners’ capacity to question, make connections, innovate, solve problems, communicate, collaborate and reflect critically. Learners at all levels are encouraged to develop projects that are personal to them and also work to find and select appropriate artists and craftspeople to research, in order to develop their contextual understanding and creative skills. The department runs an inclusive approach to Art & Design with the intentions of expanding the horizons of every learner. It is a multi-disciplinary department that runs a number of different workshops including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and 3D design using clay, card and found materials.

We provide a range of extra-curricular activities such as the department run Art Club, workshops run by external groups and class trips to Cardiff and London, all of which enable students to gain knowledge about their own culture and society, as well as other people’s. At the end of the academic year we celebrate our exam stage student’s achievements with an exhibition of GCSE, AS and A level work and learners take part in the exhibition as exhibitors and attendees. We are a popular and lively department within the school and students in our care work extremely hard to produce exciting outcomes – as a team we are proud to support the diverse and exciting artwork they create.
