"Although I am not great at drawing, I love the exploring side of Art and some of the activities using other media that we do. The aquarium project was probably my favourite thing so far."
 - TGGS student

Art makes an essential contribution to the full range of human intelligence and offers a means of deep personal enrichment.

There is a wide range of aesthetic opportunities and acquisition of skills available at key stage three, four and five to suit the aptitudes and interests of the girls across a range of projects.

The Art Department has two full-time and one part-time member of staff. All classes are taught as mixed ability groups in specialist accommodation located in The Haystacks building.
