Art & Design
Art is a vehicle that conveys a multi-cultural world, without barriers or prejudice, contributing to an unbiased learning experience.
The Art Department aims to provide pupils with an environment that encourages pupils to express their ideas and insights of the world around them, increasing confidence and self-awareness.
Whilst Arts College status no longer exists at Northgate we still continue with the many benefits it has engendered to our school, not least the formation of a new Design Department, created through the merging of Art & Design and Design & Technology. Whilst each subject maintains its own curriculum identity, the sharing of knowledge, skills, expertise and resources is enabling the provision of a unique educational experience for Northgate pupils. Central to this experience is the development of ‘creativity’ both as a means of expression and as a fundamental ingredient of innovation.
