Arts Careers

As part of our careers curriculum year 11 pupils took part in a day exploring careers in the arts at local arts venues.  Pupils were given three options to explore over the course of the day.

The first group took part in a workshop and a tour at the Stanley Picker Gallery.  The gallery is part of Kingston University and we were given a chance to look at their current exhibition ‘At Home’, look around the workshops at the University and take part in an art workshop.

The second group were given a tour around the Yehudi Menhuin Concert Hall in the morning and Radio Jackie in the afternoon.  If you were listening to Radio Jackie at about 12:15pm on Thursday you may have heard our pupils giving a shout out!

The last group went into London and spent the day exploring venues on the Southbank including; Tate Modern, the National Theatre, the Southbank Centre and the Christmas Markets.

All of the pupils enjoyed their day and learning about the wide variety of jobs available in the arts.


Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
