In the arts, there are no right or wrong answers. Pupils are encouraged to form opinions, to develop a critical language and a creative interpretation. From Year 7 we aim to open pupils’ eyes to view the world in a different way: to think, feel and reflect on their surroundings. But above all, to enjoy the subject. Confidence is built up through enjoyment and the simple pleasure of using materials.

Here at Runnymede our pupils have access to a wide range of materials, technologies and techniques that will broaden their creativity. Our staff provides the necessary support to push their talents further and encourage them to be brave in their artistic expression.

Teaching is complemented by regular visits to Madrid’s exquisite museums and galleries as well as mentorship from famous artists and designers who often come to share their vision and passion with our pupils.

We offer Art GCSE and A-level.
