Creative Arts

At Beatrice Tate School pupils are taught a range of creative subjects including Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Textiles and Design. In each Key Stage classes rotate termly within the subjects Art, Music, Drama and Dance as part of the Creative Arts programme. The Creative Arts programme gives pupils the opportunity to experience and learn new art forms and choose which skills they want to develop. Pupils also share what they have learnt and enjoyed through our end of term Creative Arts assemblies that include art exhibitions, dance and music performances, plays and workshops.



Art is taught on termly rotation in all year groups with the Creative Arts lessons, Music, Dance and Drama. In Art lessons students experience and develop a broad range of art techniques and explore sensory based art materials. Once pupils are confident with the materials and techniques they continue to create their own artworks in response to stimuli and existing works of art.

At Beatrice Tate school we have designated art room and resources for pupils to explore a variety of 2D and 3D art forms including drawing, painting, block and silk-screen printing, ceramics and sculpture. We also have a range of digital media equipment including cameras and iPad applications.

In Key Stage 3 pupils explore and develop their use of a variety materials and equipment within:

  • drawing
  • painting
  • printing
  • sculpture

Through these topics students experience and develop their knowledge and skills in colour mixing, hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills to form their work. These topics are taught within lessons exploring a range of historical and cultural art forms and practices

In Key Stage 4 and 5 pupils lessons cover the topics of Art and Media. These lessons reinforce pupils’ subject knowledge, skills and students are supported and encouraged in their self-expression, creativity and in communicating their experiences and/or preferences of art materials and processes.
