Art & Design

At Crosby Ravensworth we aim to engage, inspire and challenge pupils creatively. Through our teaching we equip pupils with the knowledge and skills to invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Pupils learn to be reflective and critical of their work. An understanding of how art and design has influenced history and culture in our nation and in others around the world will be developed through studying various artists and art forms. 

In summer 2023, the school attained a silver Artsmark award, which recognised how we increase opportunities to be creative, to visit museums, galleries and theatre, to celebrate pupil achievement and to raise awareness and aspirations of pupils regarding future careers working in the arts.
