• The Art Department consists of two large all purpose art rooms, a 3D room, two Sixth form studios, dark room, gallery area, materials store, two kilns, large printing press, a library and staff office.
• There is a large, purpose-built art gallery near the entrance to the school which provides opportunities to exhibit student and other artists work.
• The department has a number of computers which are connected to a colour printer and scanner which is housed in the Art Department.  Each computer has access to the Internet.
• The Art Department has its own colour photocopier.
• Photoshop is installed on the system and the department has its own digital cameras.

• Both staff teach across the age range from 11 - 18.
• Life drawing classes form part of the A level course.
• Gallery visits and drawing trips are organised to stimulate ideas and coursework projects in term time and the department aims to take every year group on a trip at some point during the school year.
• We currently follow the AQA syllabus for GCSE and the OCR syllabus for A level Art. Students are encouraged to adopt a multi-disciplinary approach and are given the freedom and support to develop their individual ideas from an early stage.
