The prime aim of the Art department is to promote a dynamic atmosphere that is conducive to the production of educationally sound and intellectually stimulating art. Such a philosophy has resulted in a plethora of strong academic results, and students have secured many places within the finest colleges of visual education including The Royal Academy, St Martin’s and Chelsea. Many of the students who go through the Art Department go on to launch careers within the visual world, usually as designers and architects.
The department takes a variety of trips (usually within the upper school) to museums and galleries and a steady flow of Artists-in-Residence helps to maintain a well stimulated environment.
Above all other considerations, art should be fun!
