The Department

We are a team of diverse skilled specialists ranging from art historians, sculptors, printmakers, painters, graphic designers, glass artists and ceramicists. Our approach to teaching strives to reach beyond any pre-determined ‘tick box’, and as teachers we are driven to develop independent learners who are armed with excellent technical ability. We are reflective practitioners who continually evolve both as a team and as individuals; we learn from each other, but above all we learn from and respond to the boys we teach.

In short, what are we all about? Marrying tradition with contemporary practice, risk-taking alongside boundary breaking, valuing diversity while focusing intentions. Facilitating space for the bold and brash as well as the carefully curated and sensitive, celebrating humour, absurdity and occasionally the challenging and provocative.
