Art & Design

The Art and Design Department aims to create the opportunity for our pupils to express themselves and work creatively and confidently with materials in a satisfying and enjoyable way, building self-esteem and fulfilment.

We aim to provide each child with insight, awareness of and appreciation into the world of visual arts and design, helping them develop skills such as research, problem-solving, evaluation, communication and presentation. They are able to explore areas of personal interest and develop technological skill through a diverse range of cultural, social and historical contexts.

The staff provide a stimulating and structured environment for all pupils, from Junior 3 to Senior 6, aimed at nurturing the pupil so that he or she may develop an independence and maturity in the expression of ideas in visual form through the increasingly confident and skilful use of materials.
