We have a small but dedicated and passionate team in the art department. We place a strong emphasis on equal opportunity within the subject and provide an environment in which all students are encouraged to become independent in their thinking and the expression of their ideas. We deliver a wide range of projects throughout all key stages that cover all things from basic drawing and painting skills to photography and 3D sculptural skills. Literacy is underpinned throughout all years as students are introduced to specialist vocabulary allowing them to analyse and reflect upon artist's work and then in turn be able to annotate their own work as it progresses. All students are encouraged to take risks with their work in order to build their confidence and forge their own creative style.

For Keystage 3 we offer an art club where students get the opportunity to take part in many exciting extra curricular activities. We regularly take part in both the Adur Sea of Lights and the Worthing Children's Parade where the students work alongside local artists to create "big makes" out of willow. We also exhibit annually at the South Of England Show's country side hub.
At Keystage 4 we offer weekly intervention where students can come and use the studios and get help with their coursework. We also offer workshops in collaboration with Worthing based art group "Creative Waves". In previous years students have exhibited work along the Lancing Beach Green coastal path and on Worthing Pier.
At Keystage 5 we offer opportunities for students to build their skills through cross establishment workshops with Lancing college. We also offer a trip to the Tate modern and South Bank in London.
