We at Herries believe a high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also appreciate how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture and creativity we are so lucky to have. We focus on creating independent thinking, self-motivated artists and designers.
There is an annual Reception Art Exhibition attended by a professional artist. As the children progress through the school pupils enter art competitions and enrich their studies with trips to art galleries.
