Bolton School Senior Boys
Art and Design
The Art Department currently has two full-time and two part-time members of staff. There are four dedicated and well-resourced studios, which are equipped to deliver ceramics, a digital curriculum, a photographic studio, screen printing and printmaking, as well as general Art, Craft and Design to all.
We currently offer GCSE Art and Design, AS and A2 Art and Design and Graphic Communication, all following the AQA specification, as well as teaching all boys in Years 7, 8 and 9.
The Sixth Form has their own working studio space and we have some of the highest ‘value added’ in the country. We run an open studio policy which encourages our students to enjoy working whenever they wish.
There is a plethora of art clubs during the week. Regular gallery and museum visits contribute to the contextual aspects of art and design education. Workshops and ‘getting our hands dirty’ are an integral part of our daily life. We have a true passion for our subject and our aim is to instil this in to our students. Creativity and the need to create is a fundamental part of being a complete human being and we work on developing this need with our students every day.
