Creative Arts Faculty

We are passionate about our art forms and share the love of our subjects with the students, through our curriculum and extra-curricular programme.

  1. We teach them to be creative, to perform, apply, respond and reflect providing transferable skills to every area of the curriculum
  2. We build the students confidence in their own ability, helping them understand themselves, communicate and relate with others and forge links between home, school and the wider world
  3. We provide a positive safe space; the strong relationships we have with our students exemplifies the trust and high expectations we have of them
  4. We create the feeling of ‘belonging’ to Oxted School and students and staff are proud to be part of our community
