Art Textiles and Design

The Art Department aims to give pupils a curiosity for art and good practical skills to use in their leisure or working lives. It is committed to enabling pupils to enjoy and to produce practical work of a high standard. It encourages individual expression and the ability to think creatively.

Unleash creativity, ideas, imagination, self-expression ......and refine appreciation...... for life

The Textiles Department is a vibrant and forward-thinking area of the school. Students learn to design and make fashion or interior products in addition to gaining an understanding of the impact design has on our everyday lives.

Results are excellent and a significant number of pupils continue with art and textiles or an associated design course, such as architecture, to degree level.
