Queen's gate sixth former in art room painting

Art

The Art Department at Queen’s Gate is an open, airy space that welcomes and encourages pupils to develop their creative talents at all levels. Inspirational images line the walls of the department from younger pupils alongside completed GCSE and A level work.

Reflecting the Art Department ethos, traditional approaches underpin teaching at all levels, with drawing, sculpture, printmaking and painting being taught throughout KS3 and in greater depth at GCSE and A level. Older pupils use their key artistic skills to enable them to express their own personal ideas as they progress through the school, allowing them to experiment widely with different art approaches and methods, culminating in confident, highly individual pieces.

All pupils are welcome to the Department outside of lesson time to pursue their own artistic interests and share creative time with their friends, allowing each pupil to feel that the Art Department is both a learning area and a relaxed, comfortable space where their instinctive creativity can flourish.

There are four members of staff, including the Head of Art and the technician who is responsible for the smooth running of the department.

Our students regularly visit galleries and art shows and our annual A level Art trips include Venice, Amsterdam and New York.

Students participate in various Art competitions and regularly win prizes and merits of achievements. Our annual Art exhibition of GCSE and A level art is held every year in June and welcomes parents, friends and other visitors who unanimously praise The Queen’s Gate Art talent.

A big thank you to all the Queen's Gate families that donated Easter Eggs  for our Sixth Form volunteers to take the The Kensington and Chelsea Food Bank for their last Friday trip of term. ⁠
⁠
The Trussell Trust @trusselltrust supports a nationwide network of food banks and provide emergency food and support to people facing hardship, whilst also campaigning for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.⁠
⁠
Every week several volunteers from Queen's Gate go to our local food bank to deliver the food we've collected and help to package up the food parcels.⁠
