Art and design lets all our children express themselves and be creative. It’s a great way to spend a lesson or time out of school.

Our Art and Design curriculum has been created to ensure all children are inspired, challenged and equipped with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

Children gain an understanding of how art and design reflects and shapes our history, and contributes to the culture, creativity and wealth of society.

They learn about artists, craft makers and designers  from around the world.

The school follows the National Curriculum for Art and Design and intends to ensure that all pupils:

  • produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • develop skills in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art, craft and design techniques
  • Improve their knowledge and skills in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
  • evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design
  • know about great artists, craft makers and designers

We enrich the curriculum by inviting artists and designers to our school to talk about their work and to work alongside our children. We also make use of the artistic venues and art galleries in London. We can usually offer after school extra curriular art activities during part of the school year.
