Art Department

Dauntsey's has its own Art School, housed separately from the main school site in a spacious building rich with history. The wide ranging programme offered to all pupils includes; painting and drawing, relief printing, sculpture and ceramics.

Each class group is offered a full complement of computer design, including: image manipulation, animation and 3-D modelling. History of Art is taught as an integral part of the course throughout all year groups and its' influence is reflected in pupils' work at every stage.

Central to the Art School is the exhibition area, The Gallery, which hosts a wide range of work of artistic merit from both pupils and guest artists, all of whom are invited and encouraged to display their art work.

All pupils study art for their first three years at Dauntsey's when the foundations of visual literacy and awareness and technical competence are laid. Thereafter, pupils may opt to study the subject for GCSE (Edexcel) and then go on to AS and A2 (Edexcel) in the Sixth Form.

Most A2 candidates go on to take up university places related to art or further their art studies by applying for a place on an Arts Foundation Course.
