At REACH school we aim to provide enjoyment through supporting and encouraging creativity, imagination, and experimentation. Exploring a variety of media and techniques to inspire and challenge students. Art is not only a practical subject but is also academic as it engages with history, politics and society, social, economic, cultural, and spiritual aspects of the past, present and future.

Studying Art at school teaches determination and resilience, qualities useful to any career. When studying Art, a student will make mistakes and must have the courage to try different methods and techniques to start again, which builds their confidence. These are the skills employers value alongside qualifications. There are a range of careers in Art and Design including graphic designer, architect, illustrator, fashion designer, jobs in media, film and theatre, photographer, and tattooists.
