Art is a well-established department at Wrekin and we have a proud heritage of excellence and inclusivity. Art has the potential to enrich everyone’s life and for our pupils the subject complements other areas of the school curriculum. The department reflects the diversity of the subject and we aim to encourage not just the development of technical skills, but also a critical awareness of the world that surrounds us. The purpose-built art school provides space for painting and drawing, graphic design, pottery, sculpture, photography and film. Many of the spaces are also used for presenting and displaying pupils’ work throughout the school year.
Full details of the curriculum are available in the GCSE and Sixth Form Curriculum guides
