At St James, we offer a broad curriculum that covers a large range of artists' styles and mediums.

Sketchbooks are also used to complement and support the artwork, helping to develop the transferable skills of critical thinking.

We are working hard as a team to develop lessons that are categorised into five areas:

Making Skills

Generating Ideas

Formal Elements

Knowledge of Artists



These lessons compliment our wider curriculum at the same time as developing the discrete skills of craft and design.

At the end of each year, St James is always proud to showcase and celebrate the exquisite artistic talents of our children in a whole school Art Exhibition.


Here are some pictures from exhibitions in the past.
