We believe that Art matters. It changes lives, documents and reflects experiences and shows us
worlds and perspectives other than our own. Making art has been a fundamental part of human
activity since the beginnings of known history.

Through our teaching across the key stages we hope to inspire and motivate our students with
projects which are diverse and accessible for all. These projects provide opportunities for students
to work creatively and develop a broad range of skills using a range of materials, techniques and

Courses are structured so that students learn about a wide range of artists and develop confidence
in their ability to respond and explore concepts and ideas in depth and with growing independence
throughout their art education at Colfox.

Projects are carefully considered and taught in a way that enables students to develop transferrable
skills which are vitally important in order to be successful learners. Organisation, perseverance and
the ability to explore, experiment, review and reflect being key!

Art is a powerful means of communication and we aim through our teaching and the careful
planning of our curriculum to motivate students and empower them so they can express their ideas
and beliefs and understand and enjoy the creative process!
