Meriden’s Creative Arts offerings allow girls to develop as creative producers and as knowledgeable consumers of art and culture.
Across the curriculum, girls learn the skills required to create bodies of work and to evaluate their own work and that of others. Meriden girls have always enjoyed their time in the School’s technology suites, art rooms and kitchens – specialised spaces that present opportunities for creativity, skill development and self-expression.
In the Junior School, Creative Arts subjects are taught explicitly as well as being incorporated across the curriculum. The girls learn to be makers who consider both form, and function and their colourful classrooms are a celebration of the joy they experience during this process.
In the Senior School, students have access to a combination of compulsory and elective Creative Arts subjects including: Design and Technology, Food Technology, Graphic Design, Hospitality, Living in the Digital World and Visual Arts.
