Curriculum Purpose

Preparing students for careers and furthering social justice

Our academic art curriculum and lessons, rooted in drawing will give students the opportunity to choose from a wide range of careers. It will also give students powerful knowledge, essential for communication and expression.

Knowledge acquisition as a measure of progress

Our curriculum and lessons will give students the explicit, implicit and tacit knowledge to translate, record, invent and analyse the world around them.

Reflect our community 

Our curriculum and lessons will reflect positively on the community of students within our school, from drawing on a diverse range of artists to valuing the local area and population as subject matter.

Teaching Art for its intrinsic value

We believe that the world is an amazing place. Art helps us understand just how amazing it is.  “With a history as long and intensive as the history of our culture, the act of drawing remains a fundamental means to translate, document, record and analyse the worlds we inhabit.” Anita Taylor.
