Welcome to Chaigeley School


In art lessons at Chaigeley, students make and respond using visual arts knowledge, understanding and skills to express meanings associated with personal views, intrinsic and extrinsic worlds. Art engages students in a journey of discovery, experimentation and problem-solving relevant to visual perception and visual language, utilising visual techniques, technologies, practices and processes. Learning in Art leads students to become increasingly confident and proficient in achieving their own personal visual aesthetic, as well as appreciating and valuing that of others.

Through the learning of art students are invited to view the world through various lenses and contexts. Students learn to recognise the significance of visual arts histories, theories and practices, exploring and responding to artists, craftspeople and designers and their artworks. students apply visual arts knowledge in order to make critical judgments about their own work and that of others. Learning in the Arts more broadly, helps students to develop understanding of world cultures and their responsibilities as global citizens.


Importantly, at Chaigeley, art is a way of learning about ourselves, developing psychological resources, and improving our sense of wellbeing and self-worth. Students are encouraged to pursue Arts Awards and GCSE’s in Art, Craft and Design,
