The CTS Art Department provides a dynamic and stimulating environment where students are offered a broad and varied curriculum. High achievement is encouraged through an engaging programme of high quality teaching and learning. We expect all students to do their very best as they explore, develop and refine new skills. Students receive a high level of individually tailored support from a skilled team of teachers and support staff.

Students are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively through independent learning, practical application, teamwork and reflection. We also prepare our students for the future by addressing issues relevant to their personal, social and moral development.

Art is part of the design & technology department.  There are two well-equipped art studios, two IT suites.  As part of the wider facilities in the department there are also two workshops and a food technology room.   The department has a range of specialist equipment including an A2 laser cutter and numerous 3D Printers.
