The fantastic art and design work that children produce is best seen during a tour of the school. Work is displayed around the building from art lessons in each year groups and school and local initiatives such as the WW1 Centenary, Portishead in Bloom, Window Wonderland and our own annual excellence week which always has an art focus.
