Grammar School

Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre

In the art department we aim to give students an experience of as many media as possible so everyone can find a creative way of working that they can then develop to higher levels.

Drawing is the basis of all skills and the use of sketchbooks is encouraged from Year 7.

Each project involves looking at previous artists work to build up an interest in art history, to improve research skills and to see varied responses to any given starting point.

Media used in KS3 include pen and ink, watercolour, collage, ceramics, print making and computer graphics.


For any queries on dates, please contact the school on 256571. A weekly calendar is sent to parents for both the lower school and Sixth Form Centre. 

The school term dates can be accessed from the Education Departments website.
