Ceramics is a process that has been practiced for thousands of years.
It is becoming very rare for Ceramics to be taught in schools but at Bede's it is part of an exciting Art and Design programme and the current department has been creating with clay for over 30 years.
The department strives to create ambitious, original and fluent pieces of ceramic work. Whether it is functional or sculptural, the main aim of the subject is to unlock pupils' potential and inspire to create with clay.
Pupils are challenged to develop ideas, experiment with designs and realise intentions through investigation.
Ceramics can be studied in First Year as an Option and at GCSE and A-Level.
“ For me, teaching is about opening up a child’s imagination, desire to succeed and developing their ambition to achieve beyond what they expect. ”
