Art & Design

St Faith’s has a thriving Art Department where creativity is seen to be a core and vital part of education that encourages students to engage with and relate to the world around them. Our objective is for every pupil to work with confidence and ambition. Individuality and diversity are seen to be fundamental, and all pupils are encouraged to aspire to excellence. Furthermore, the hope is that pupils are inspired and retain an interest in art for life.


The Art Department has two specialist studios for painting, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking, and a separate Project Deck so students work within the broad boundaries of Art and Design. The Art teaching studios house excellent facilities and create a peaceful and encouraging working environment. Pupils also benefit from the expertise of experienced specialist teachers and full-time Art Technician, who is a practising artist.
