Years 9-11 at Fine Arts School offer pupils a broad curriculum with outstanding provision in the Arts and Humanities. Above all, Fine Arts School is a stimulating and nurturing environment. We believe that pupils flourish when happy as this enables them to develop curiosity, knowledge, individual skills, and confidence. We take the view that all our pupils have particular individual abilities and talents which may have previously been overlooked and we see it as our job to help them find the areas in which they can excel.
Students in Years 9-11 at Fine Arts are taught in classes no larger than twelve, in order to give all pupils maximum individual attention. We have a formal structure to the day, with classes and study periods timetabled between 9am and 4.30pm. In addition, we have a Homework Club on Monday to Thursday from 4.30pm to 5.45pm, which gives pupils the option of homework study in a supervised environment. Classes are one hour long, with breaks throughout the day.
Pupils are taught how to take a responsible approach to their studies, but are nevertheless closely supervised. All pupils have a personal tutor who offers academic and personal advice and assesses individual progress each fortnight. The personal tutor is available for parents to discuss a pupil’s progress at the end of each day. We have two Parents’ Evenings each year, as well as sending full, half-termly reports from subject and personal tutors.
