Art and Design

Art and Design plays a key role in our Enrichment Curriculum as we encourage pupils to think creatively and express themselves through the medium of Art from an early age.

An Art Trail has recently been developed in school to showcase the variety of artwork being produced.  It takes inspiration from artists all over the world – from the more traditional to the more contemporary.

The trail includes examples of clay sculpture, acrylic painting on canvas, splatter painting,  paper collage, pastels, collage on plastic sheeting and sketching with charcoal.  It is very much a work-in-progress and is constantly being updated and added to.  We hope you enjoy your tour of the trail when you are next in school.

The gallery of photographs below will guide you through a year in Art and Design at Bourn Academy.


We are fortunate to have a group of very talented parents and members of the wider community who are keen to offer their time and share their skills with us.  This is particularly evident during special art events, eg, Arts Week or Easter Activity Morning!

We are also fortunate to be able to work closely with local charity Accessart  who have worked with us on several projects both within school and within our local network of schools. Their work has ranged from polar bear modroc sculptures in an after school club to a loom band sculpture which featured on Newsnight!
