Our ethos is one of helping pupils to work to their strengths and we support pupils in their diverse creative endeavours.
The benefits of taking a creative subject are many, from developing manual dexterity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills to relaxing and improving wellbeing. Importantly, pupils develop their visual literacy and ability to observe and understand the world around them, and can independently develop ideas and formulate creative solutions.
Why Study Art & Design?
Fine art is thriving at King’s, with consistently good results and the A-level course we offer aims to stretch and challenge creative minds. It will develop not only practical skills in relation to drawing and painting, but also many transferable skills.
Students studying fine art at A level learn to be self-disciplined, self-critical and confident in the way they approach their work. We have fantastic facilities spread over four floors and Sixth Formers have their own spaces to enable them to work independently throughout the week.
