Faculty Vision: The Creative and Performing Arts faculty aim to provide a curriculum that builds a solid base developing problem solving, confidence, collaboration and communication.  We seek to challenge motivate and inspire students to reach their full creative brilliance through performance and practical work.  Students are encouraged to experiment, explore and work to create products, art work and performances to a high standard whilst demonstrating resilience and critical thinking. We aim to exploit and stretch existing talent and develop a new passion for the creative world 

Subject Vison: 

Art encourages all students to become inquisitive, imaginative and innovative and share responsibility for their own learning.
Art allows creative thinking and it’s often a risky process and that students learn from their mistakes as well as their successes.
Art students should have opportunities to learn in a variety of ways and recognise that celebrating their successes will inspire them to think creatively in other areas.
