The Art Department at Wardle Academy is a dynamic and stimulating environment where pupils learn an extensive and diverse curriculum. Achievement is encouraged through an engaging programme of high quality teaching and learning. Students receive a high level of support from a skilled team of teachers and support staff. This provision extends outside the classroom with our fun range of extra-curricular activities for all year groups.
Over their time working with the department, pupils will have the opportunity to explore and create a diverse range of art ranging from studies of cultural tribes to contemporary installation art.
Students will be given the opportunity to develop skills in drawing, painting, print making, sculpture, textiles, design and construction. Students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively through independent learning, practical application, teamwork and reflection. We also prepare our students for the future by addressing issues relevant to their personal, social and moral development.
