Art & Design Technology

2

Each year group has two periods of Art each week with our Head of Art in our fully equipped Art Studio.

 

They learn to use a variety of mediums, from painting in water colour or acrylic, to creating 3D work using wire, ceramics or clay to drawing in pencil, charcoal or pastels. The iPads are used to help the girls' research artists as well as create their own work on the huge variety of art Apps available.

We enter a number of competitions over the year, including the Saatchi Gallery, Sunday Telegraph Art Prize and the Young Art Competition and have had huge successes in the past. We also run a programme for potential scholars and help them prepare portfolios as well as run gallery visits to bring the subject to life.

Each year group has two periods of DT in a week. If they are not cooking in this time, they will learn a variety of skills from needlework, to woodwork and metalwork, creating all kinds of objects such as wooden toys, motorised buggies, stools, candle holders, park benches and working go-karts. The girls learn the important skills of measuring and using machinery and tools as well as teamwork and safety.

At the end of the school year some of the best work in each year group is chosen to be exhibited in our Art and DT Show. There are prizes awarded in each category and parents are welcome to come and view their daughter’s work.

Music

Broomwood Hall has built up a strong musical tradition, with each class having at least one period each week with the Director of Music covering performance and ensemble skills, theory, and composition.


There is a large number of part-time staff available to give instrumental tuition - piano and violin are the most popular, but we can arrange lessons in practically any instrument. There are many chances to take part in group music including an Orchestra, Jazz Band, Recorder Ensemble, Flute Ensemble, Junior Strings, Chamber Choir, Guitar Ensemble, Senior Strings, Junior Choir, Show Choir and Training Choir. We also offer Music Theory.



We offer as many chances to perform as possible. Concerts take place Class 6-8 Concert 2013 9each term and Inter-House Music Competitions are keenly fought every year. The girls are also offered the opportunity to play in assembly on a regular basis and there are regular master classes held with Northcote or the Lower Schools. More able girls are extended through orchestra days or masterclasses at senior schools. We work hard to support musically gifted children and have achieved music scholarships to schools such as King’s Canterbury, Tudor Hall and Wycombe Abbey.
