Art is intrinsic to the life of King's High. Whether our students aspire to have careers in the creative arts industry, or whether they want to develop their personal creative skills and build confidence, the subject offers something for everyone. As a department, we believe that Art is as important as literacy; it is essential for wellbeing, knowing our past and preparing for our future, embracing emotion and allowing for self-expression. Quite simply, Art is an essential component of our daily lives and allows us to be different; it is what makes us human and impossible to replicate - put simply, to be creative.

The importance of art and creativity is recognised from Year 7 when all of our girls participate in the subject – where a range of abilities are harnessed and encouraged, through to GCSE and A Level options. Art at King’s also reaches the local community – with entry into local competitions for schools at St Mary’s Church, Warwick and a recent exhibition alongside Warwick Preparatory School held at the Old Court House on Jury Street in Warwick.
We have a department which offers the highest calibre of facilities including: three purpose built teaching studios which are flooded with natural daylight, a designated Sixth Form studio whereby girls can work during study periods, a ceramics suite with four potters wheels, a print room with etching and lino presses, a Dark Room for our keen photographers and so much more!
"Girls are encouraged to be free thinkers, expressive artists who are confident to break barriers and create unique and exciting outcomes."
