Millfield is totally committed to the Arts and offers all our pupils opportunities to explore their creative side. We have invested in some of the very latest facilities, housed in our purpose-built Fine Arts Centre. This means those who opt to take Art or Art & Design as an examination subject have access to outstanding resources seldom seen outside a university, including printmaking, sculpture, printing and photography studios.

We have 14 teaching staff within the Art & Design Department. All staff are experts in their own field with the flexibility to teach across all disciplines. This allows us to offer a range of vocational and Fine Art courses to suit all interests and levels of ability, where pupils can engage in everything from drawing and painting to photography and computer aided design. 

Courses offered:

  • GCSE Art and Design - Fine Art
  • A level Art and Design - Fine Art
  • A level Art and Design - Photography
  • BTEC National Diploma in Art & Design

Enrichment and trips:

Our nationally recognised Atkinson Gallery holds major contemporary art exhibitions, promoting and stimulating debate, and provides pupils with access to the artists to talk about their work. The Millfield Arts Project has commissioned a number of large scale sculptures which form a sculpture trail on the school campus which provides an excellent learning experience for pupils. In support of pupils' A level studies, we arrange stimulating and thought-provoking visits to the major art galleries in the UK, Europe and America. We also organise trips to countries with rich visual histories and cultures, such as Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Japan.
