Art & DT

St Hugh's School has a range of specialist facilities to support the teaching of Art and DT:

  • A light and airy art room
  • A DT room equipped with Hegner saws and pillar drills
  • A food technology room
  • A kiln
  • Many Art and DT projects are also focused in our ourdoor learning area and woods

Art lessons start formally in Reception though painting is very popular in the Nursery. In addition DT lessons start in Year 5 and both subjects then continue to be taught throughout the school. In addition there are various art hobbies on most evenings and on Wednesday and Saturday lunchtimes.

Scholarships in recent years have been won to a variety of senior schools. Each scholar has the option of creating a work of art on a wall in school to inspire future generations of pupils and, with so many scholars over the years, we are running out of wall space! Scholars art trips also take place throughout the year.

The recent ISI inspection found that "the quality of artwork is exceptional throughout the school."
