Art & DesignDesign and Creativity

Art and Design beyond the classroom offers every girl the opportunity to explore a broad range of materials and processes, and develop strong technical skills. The department is housed in beautifully light studios and includes 3D printers, potters wheels and its own kiln.

Extra-curricular activities include art clubs that focus on 3D design, photography, ceramics, textiles and sculpture. Students have the chance to gain further inspiration on trips to venues such as The Welcome Trust, Emirates Air Line cable cars, the CASS Sculpture Foundation and the numerous museums and galleries in London. Student artwork is displayed throughout the school and is showcased at the annual Lower School Show – which last year was our own ‘Crufts’ exhibition – and the GCSE, A level and IB exhibitions.

We have a very strong cohort of students who study GCSE, A level and IB art and each year we offer art scholarships at Sixth Form.

Individual portfolios are of high quality, and reflect pupils’ independence and an excellent theoretical knowledge of practical approaches.
