Arts Champion's Statement
I have twenty-five years experience teaching Art & Design at KS3, 4 and 5, with twenty years responsibilities as Head of Department. I am passionate about the visual arts and love working with young people, encouraging them to explore their creativity and continuing to develop my learning in turn.
I believe in the importance of experiential learning. Bringing creative practitioners into the classroom and taking students out into creative learning environments, which enrich their educational experiences in exciting and surprising ways. These opportunities engage and motivate young people on their own personal creative learning journeys, resulting in not only academic achievement, but developing self expression and individual well being.
