The Art Department is an exciting and dynamic hub of activity. We believe that creativity should permeate all areas of the school, allowing our pupils to freely develop their ideas, to both discover their own talents within our community and to celebrate their individuality.

Our Artist of the Week programme is a celebration of individual responses to independent projects. Head of Art, Mr Velázquez chooses one individual piece or a group project per week which is then displayed in the Dining Hall, and shared on the schools' social media channels. To view all the pieces from last year, click here.

A number of our children go on to receive Art Scholarships to many prestigious senior schools – view our recent leavers’ destinations, here.


“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint’, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”  

Vincent van Gogh
