Art

Welcome to the Art page.

Mrs Hickson leads Art throughout school.
‘Since as child, I have always been interested in Art.
My brother studied at Royal Art college and I loved watching him work.
At university, I majored in Art and did a four year degree, one of which was dedicated to Art study. I want to make the curriculum accessible to all and for children to develop a natural curiosity.
Art reflects the diversity of our Nation and world allowing us to see the world through different lenses.’

Mrs Hickson
