Use Of Sketchbooks

Starting 2016, all pupils are expected to use a sketchbook as part of their art experience. The sketchbooks serve as a platform for pupils to record information, generate ideas, explore different techniques and reflect.



Music


The Music Department aims to help pupils achieve a personal level of understanding, appreciation and passion for music. Every pupil will develop a background in music and musicianship that prepares them for individual and ensemble playing in school.
