Curriculum Aims:

  • We want all pupils to draw on a well-connected knowledge, understanding of social context, independence, resourcefulness, and creative thinking that can be used to reason and solve problems in real life. 

  • We aim to prepare pupils for the future by ensuring they attain knowledge and technical ability in both art history and practical responses, which will help to achieve outstanding academic outcomes and develop pupil motivation in Art & Photography.  

  • We aim to ensure pupils develop positive attitudes towards Art and Photography, by giving them frequent opportunities to experience success, helping them to develop self-confidence in their ability. 

We value: 

  • Creativity thinking
