Welcome to the Imagination Faculty

Vision: Enriching Lives

Through the Imagination faculty we aim to provide practical opportunities for students to be creative and express themselves in a way that allows them to grow as an individual. Enriching lives is at the forefront of our faculty and is underpinned by the ability to offer an extensive extra-curricular timetable which in turn helps build pupils confidence and skills sets to become lifelong learners within each subject. We encourage pupils to express themselves in a way that allows them to feel safe and comfortable creating a foundation for life.

Art is a subject that allows all students to gain an opportunity to explore a range of styles and artwork from the beginning of time to the present day. Although it involves plenty of theory and history, it is essentially a practical subject which gives children a chance to develop their own creativity and gain knowledge of different artists. The subject allows students to experiment with various art materials and techniques whilst focusing on a number of different themes.
