A shining Beacon for quality

This month’s gallery comes courtesy of The Beacon School in Banstead, Surrey. The collection represents a snapshot of work from students across key stage 3, 4 and 5 in both Art and Art and Photography.

The subject leader for Art, Callie Barnwell, believes “the subject really unlocks the creativity and confidence within students and provides them with a different way to really express themselves.

“Alongside this it also helps improve academic performance, develop motor skills, enables students to reflect and make decisions and well as fostering both independence and resilience. Art is an incredibly popular subject within our school and students have the freedom to really pursue their love of art and creativity.”
