Art Studio

This year we have begun our journey towards gaining the prestigious Artsmark award. This is the only award for schools which is certified by the Arts Council of England, and is supported by Goldsmiths University, London.


One of our targets we have set for the award it to create a central creative hub where all of our art supplies are pooled together for all to use. Having a central creative hub will allow us to do greater and grander art projects, and expose the children to the wider range of art techniques.

Maple Class had a test run of The Studio during their art class this week, and learnt how to use score and slip method to decorate a clay pinch pot.

Black History Month Art Competition

A huge congratulations to Rose Farwell from Year 2 and Chelsea Brown from Year 6 who are the final winners of our Black History Month Competition! Your effort and attention to detail was exemplary. Well done girls and we hope that you enjoy your new Art Set!

Art aims

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
