The department has a strong reputation for excellence and scholarships to a wide range of senior schools are won consistently on an annual basis. We seek potential and set high but achievable aims for all pupils.
Art and Design involves multiple disciplines, encouraging every pupil to succeed in different ways and gain confidence in their own ability.
All pupils have access to the Art room in their free time, evenings and weekends. We provide extra evening activities in ceramics, enamelling and art, where children with a particular interest in these areas may develop their skills.
For more able and gifted children, we have a successful Scholars programme where children from Year 6 to Top Year may benefit from group tuition by a practising local artist. We are keen to invite practising artists to conduct workshops at Abberley, as this has proved an excellent way to enthuse our pupils
