The Art Department is an exciting, vibrant and creative hub at the heart of the school. Art is taught by a specialist art teacher and all children from Reception to year 8 enjoy specialist weekly lessons. All children develop a visual art sketchbook, learning that art is a process, not just an outcome.

The school offers a number of extracurricular art clubs, for both key stages, taught by internal Art teaching staff and external providers Creativityarts,, for those who want to explore their creative potential further.

Gallery trips, artist workshops and art competitions are a regular feature in the life of the department. In 2019/20 Chepstow House exhibited in the National Gallery’s Take One Picture Exhibition and participated in Tate Britain and Steve McQueen’s ambitious collaboration year 3 Project, along with entries in the Mayor of London’s 4th plinth competition and the Royal Academy of Art: Young Artist Competition. Every year, Chepstow House also supports the amazing charitable work of the Royal College of Art: Young Art Competition.

Children’s work is celebrated throughout the school, with a revolving display of their work, brightening up our Chepstow House community.
