Creative Arts - Art & Design

Creativity is key at PHC and our Art Department is at the forefront of this.

The open studio is well equipped including a Dark Room, Photography Suite, IT Facilities for Digital Photography and a Ceramics Room. 

All the staff are practising, respected artists, working across a range of disciplines and the team is often joined by visiting artists.

Our wealth of experience and opportunity enables our pupils to enhance their skills, techniques and interests, showcasing their work at our exhibitions.
