At Dean Close, we celebrate creativity, culture and performance. 

Our exceptional purpose-built two-storey Art School provides a versatile and creative environment, with excellent studio spaces for specialist work in 2 and 3 dimensions, and individually allocated work areas for Sixth Form pupils.  

The Department is run with a Fine Art emphasis; the disciplines of painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics are of particular strength, but opportunities to work with printmaking, digital photography and Photoshop are also popular.  

The Department ethos focuses on individuality and ownership, leading to many diverse, very personal portfolios.
