Art and Design
At Holy Trinity we strive to demonstrate a bespoke, rich and varied curriculum based on quality text with meaningful links between all subjects. Teachers present all aspects of this broad and balanced curriculum and are visibly encouraging discussion and the whole-hearted engagement of pupils. Because of this, our pupils develop detailed Artistic knowledge and skills. All pupils at Holy Trinity enjoy Art and Design lessons in our designated Art Studio room, surrounded by a wide collection of other pupil's work and famous masterpieces for inspiration.
