From Monday 21st September, we will only offer grab bags (sandwich, drink and snack) during school lunch. Despite our best efforts to offer a hot meal at lunchtime, we are unable to do so whilst ensuring social distancing measures between year groups are maintained. Year 7, 9, and 10 students should return to school on Tuesday 22nd September. Students from Progress Group 8E should return on 23rd September.

Art & Design

Art provides many creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities for students which will help them form a real appreciation of art in their everyday lives.

Students will learn a variety of techniques and methods through experimentation and refinement of materials. Students will research and form opinions on both traditional as well as contemporary artists, from a wide range of cultures.

Art helps students to be able to express themselves and think creatively. It also challenges students to consider complex issues, thoughts and feelings.
