The Arts and Design Technology Intent Statement
The broad reach of the Arts and DT Faculty enables a curriculum that offers every student a chance to learn new skills, to develop their creativity and produce outcomes that they are rightly proud of. The faculty subject umbrella includes Art, Photography, Drama, Graphics, Textiles, Food Technology, Hospitality and Catering, Media, Music and Music Technology. Students work independently and collaboratively in well-resourced environments and have a number of extended curriculum opportunities to share their learning and enthusiasm within the school and the wider community, one notable example of this includes the annual Arts Summer Showcase. The curriculum supports a huge range of transferable skills and a strong foundation for specialised work within a single department at university level or in employment.
