Encouraging growth mindsets

Sparking curiosity

Teaching & learning for the 21st century


At West Lodge, we take our creative subjects seriously.

Our children enjoy weekly lessons in Art, in our recently refurbished Art Room, where they are taught using a range of media and given many opportunities to explore their own creativity.

We encourage our children to take part in competitions and they have enjoyed many successes.

Every year, the whole school studies an artist and produces a collaborative piece as well as individual ones. Throughout their time at West Lodge, the children will have been able to learn about many famous artists from the past and more contemporary ones too.

In Art we get to do drawing, paint, pastels and watercolours and we hosted an art completion with a Mexican theme.
