You can’t use up creativity. The more you use the more you have.

Within the six Art and Design studios in the Richard Bull Centre, our pupils have the freedom to develop and express ideas creatively through a range of materials and approaches.

Guided by our experienced team of specialist teachers, who are practising artists in their own right, all pupils from Lower 1 (Year 6) to Form 3 (Year 9) take part in a programme of practical arts following the IB Middle Years Programme.

Large numbers of pupils take one Creative Arts subject to GCSE level. There is a wealth of choice available, including printmaking, textiles, painting or three-dimensional design, exploring architectural design, interior design and sculpture.

In the Upper School, students follow one or more of our A-level or IB Diploma Visual Art courses as part of a broad programme of study, whilst some specialise in the creative subjects in preparation for an arts-related career. History of Art is taught through the A-level Art: Critical and Contextual Studies (CSS) course, where the emphasis is on learning about and writing about art, building a confidence to find your own voice when talking about visual imagery, with a focus on curation, the art market, galleries and museums, which is a key aspect of Art as a whole.
