Art and Design
John Hampden School prides itself on the artistic talents of its pupils. This is down to the fact that Art plays a valuable and integral role in the overall ethos of this school. Art is an ongoing process through which all children are given opportunities to develop specific skills, knowledge and understanding to enable them to work in variety of media, style and form. It enables children of all abilities to use their creative imagination to achieve their potential with guidance and given criteria.
Children work individually and collaboratively with other pupils, adults and members of the community to develop their social and personal skills. Art is not taught in isolation, but is linked wherever appropriate to other areas of the curriculum, giving children the opportunities to develop specific art skills and reinforce skills already established.
