Welcome to the Art & Design Department

Welcome to the Toot Hill Art Department, a dynamic and stimulating environment where you will learn a broad and varied curriculum. High achievement is encouraged through an engaging programme of high quality teaching and learning. We expect all students to do their very best as they explore, develop and refine new skills, ideas and experiences. Students receive a high level of individually tailored support from a skilled team of teachers, support staff and professional practitioners.

We also prepare our students for the future by addressing issues relevant to their personal, social and moral development.
