Photography

 

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. At the Wellington Academy, we aim to give students a high-quality art and design education, which engages, inspires and challenges students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they will be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They will also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
