The Art Department at William Hulme’s Grammar aims to teach a curriculum rooted in art history and cultural diversity. The skills explored by students are wide ranging and use an exciting variety of media to ensure success and creativity. The curriculum is based on a refinement of techniques, further development of importance and impact of art through history to present day and contextualising all of student’s work in a professional setting. Students are encouraged to be reflective on their own and their peers’ work, assessing success and offering a supportive critique. Students are assessed against the projects objectives they are working towards each term.



The main purpose of any course in art, craft and design is to develop your ability to appreciate the visual world, respond in a personal and creative way and perhaps even contribute for the benefit of everyone.

The skills you develop will be varied. Among them, you will develop a working knowledge of materials, practices and technology within art. You will develop the skills to interpret and convey your ideas and feelings using art, craft and design. You will develop your imaginative and creative powers and your experimental, analytical and documenting skills. You will also develop a specialist vocabulary and the knowledge and understanding of the place of art, craft and design in history and in contemporary society.
