Art and Design Scholars are expected to study Art and/or Design throughout their school career. All Sixth Form candidates must study Art or Design as part of their Sixth Form course. If a scholar chooses to withdraw from studying Art or Design they may lose their award, unless the Head of Art is content that their leadership of extracurricular Art and Design meets the requirements of the scholarship.

  • a range of observational drawing, painting and sketch books
