The Art curriculum is planned around the features of the RGSHW cohort. It is an ambitious, rigorous and stimulating subject. Art uses creativity and hones practical skills to equip the students with the knowledge and ability to invent and create works of art, craft and design across all three key stages.
Making art is a powerful tool; it can raise social consciousness, promote democracy and be a vehicle for change. It is therefore especially important that young, bright and enquiring minds have the opportunities to develop their cognitive skills through analysing artwork and eventually planning their own projects that challenge and engage.
We offer extracurricular opportunities such as trips in Year 9 to Harry Potter Studios, Year 8 Ceramic workshops, and an Art Lunchtime Club, to name a few. We are also launching Arts Award in 2020 supported by our practising Artist in Residence.
