Art takes place predominantly in the large Girling Art Studio where pupils are encouraged to, and supported with, finding their particular creative strengths.
There is also a screen printing room with equipment for photographic silk screen printing and a suite of Macs for Graphic and digital artists. Drawing is the basis but there are opportunities to discover painting, printmaking, 3D work, collage or photography and digital graphics.
As pupils move up the school they have more freedom to choose their own topic, but everyone is welcome to attend a range of clubs, from Animation club to Art History club. The work produced by pupils is displayed around the school and there are opportunities to showcase work in exhibitions each academic year.
Visits to major Art galleries are part of the GCSE course and other trips are organised. Excursions abroad include Barcelona and New York.
