We believe the visual arts are a vital part of a broad and balanced curriculum. We feel that the arts help students to observe, interpret, select, control, analyse and evaluate through investigation, realisation and reflection. This will allow our students to become confident and successful individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Furthermore our art curriculum will help our students to become responsible citizens who know how to make a positive contribution to society. Art encourages students to be more Global in their understanding of the interconnectedness of the world.
Our curriculum will develop awareness of the carrears in creative industries where in the UK they contribute more than £76 billion to the UK economy and employ more than 1.7 million (1 in 20 UK jobs). Students will also develop cultural capital by giving them the opportunity to engage in activities that develops their knowledge in order to prepare them for the world of work and further education.
