Art and Design Technology


Set in the grounds of the school, the Art hut is a hive of activity. The aim is to build the children's confidence and show them that Art and D.T. are integral to all subjects, and consequently the children complete a lot of cross-curricular projects.

The syllabus covers drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, ceramics, 3D printing, electronics and construction. Children are encouraged to experiment and, through this, discover that they can achieve more than they thought possible.

Over the years we have created the Eiffel Tower, papier maché sculptures and large scale paintings. The children's work is always on display in the school.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on acquiring strong observational and sound technical skills that are the foundation of every talented young artist and designer. Talented children are prepared for scholarships to senior schools.

We have frequent visits from external artists to enhance the programme of study. These include Raku firing days in ceramics. 

We work on the school drama productions to create props and generally involve ourselves in all aspects of school life.

The Art hut is always open to the pupils allowing them to finish school projects or to work on their own creations. The aim is to inspire every child to both enjoy and appreciate art and design in all its varied forms.
