Art & Design

The Good Schools Guide recently described our Art Department as a “creative oasis – the words ‘art department’ simply don’t do justice.”

The Good Schools Guide has consistently awarded The Oratory top accolades both for A Level and GCSE Art and Design, confirming our place nationally as one of the top schools for art in the country. The department believes that anyone can be an artist, and that here film making, textiles, coding and animation are all possible alongside traditional Art media. In an age where creative thinking is becoming increasingly important in the workplace, the Oratory Art Department is well placed to equip our pupils for the future.

A Level 2021 Exam Results were 100% A*-A in both Art and Photography A Levels.
