Art and design Technology

For every child, an enriched comprehensive education includes active participation in an arts curriculum. Many studies have proven that a well-rounded Arts Education program has a remarkable impact on student's academic, social and emotional outcomes. Here at Bickley, we value our arts program. The arts in our school are embedded throughout the curriculum.

In every year group, pupils have a variety of opportunities to explore and make art in a wide variety of media. Incorporating art with other subjects increases students' ability to make cross-curricular links. Art can help reach some students who might not otherwise be fully engaged in classwork, by providing another avenue to do so.

Art experiences help foster critical thinking skills with its open-ended approach. It provides challenges for learners at every level. This year, students at Bickley have participated in many exciting, creative and fun art projects that have enhanced their learning. We take pride in our students' work and we display it prominently around our school.
