Art & Design

Art at King’s offers pupils the opportunity to develop their creativity in a wide variety of contexts. Through exploring and sharing ideas, pupils develop confidence and independence in learning. By engaging in imaginative and creative activities pupils learn to take managed risks, trying out new ways of working without fear of failure.

Art helps pupils to appreciate the diversity of ideas with their own and other cultures and traditions. Art promotes an enterprising culture and develops pupils’ ability to work collaboratively. A pupil’s understanding and appreciation of fine art, design and craft will enrich their lives now and in the future. Art at King’s offers every pupil the opportunity to think, organise and plan ideas, build up confidence and become independent learners. The King’s five Learning Habits underpin all that is done in the Art Department.

The Art Department consists of three full-time specialist Art teachers and an Art & Design Technician, all of whom are also practitioners within their own specialist areas. We pride ourselves on the preparation that we provide for our students to enter a world of education and employment within the creative industries.
