Art and Design

At Starbank, we believe in the power of Art and Design and are committed to offering all of our pupils a high-quality Art and Design education which inspires pupils to develop their artistic skills and knowledge. Our aim is to give pupils the skills and knowledge they require to enable them to express ideas and experiences in a visual form. We strive to offer pupils the opportunity to use Art and Design as a means for personal expression.

We are passionate about Art and Design and strive to put creativity at the heart of everything we do. We hope that through our Art and Design curriculum we inspire our pupils to release their creativity and develop a love for art. We consider all of our students to be artists, and we encourage them to flourish.
