Introduction to the Department:


In Art at Purbrook Park School we aim to bring as many experiences as possible to our lessons to encourage pupils to have an enthusiasm for the subject.

Pupils are given opportunities to experiment with materials from painting and drawing to 3D making, including clay.

Pupils take Art for 2 hours per fortnight in years 7 and 8 and can opt to take it at GCSE in years 9, 10 and 11.

During year 7 and 8 we aim to allow pupils to experience as many different materials as possible.
