Art is not what you see but what you make others see” Edgar Degas

In Art we create a working atmosphere where students love to learn, are confident to take risks and have the skills to adapt and develop independently or as a team. As staff we aim to nurture students’ passion for the subject through exciting and creative lessons. We embrace and celebrate the uniqueness and individuality of all our students.
