Elms School


Art is delivered across all key stages at Elms and allows our pupils to Thrive, express themselves and grow in confidence.

Art lessons at Elms are creative, practical and engaging. Trips are integral to the study of Art and Design and designed to complement the pupils’ practical work and independent learning. These include visits to permanent and current exhibitions and galleries, cultural centres and architectural sites.

The Art Department is well resourced, and we offer a wide range of activities including; painting drawing, print making, ceramic and photography.

Art is taught from year 1 to year 11. All pupils start their 3 year GCSE journey in year 9.

The Art Department aims to:

  • Develop pupils’ appreciation of art and design in the world they live in.
  • Improve pupils’ practical skills using a variety of both new media and traditional techniques, to create outcomes.
  • Create confidence at drawing for visual communication.
  • Cultivate pupils’ appreciation of art and design in the world they live in and understand how the creative thinking process is a skill that can be applied to many sectors of industry.

At Elms we are passionate about Art and transfer this ethos to our pupils, as the creative thinkers of the future.
