Hill House School, Doncaster

Doncaster, United Kingdom

Hill House School situated in Doncaster is an independent day school for girls and boys aged from 3 to 18. We pride ourselves in being able to bring out the potential in all our children. The Art Department has a central place in the school as an integral part of a broad and balanced curriculum. With 3 well qualified and inspirational teachers, all of whom are still practising artists, we provide our pupils with opportunities to explore the world of thoughts and feelings and to express their ideas in ways which are powerful alternatives to the written word.Every year a range of artists deliver workshops in and out of school including Sculptors, Illustrators, Fine Art Painters, Photographers, Fashion and Textiles Designers, and Degree Students who all contribute to inspire and inform our pupils. The Art Department also has a Gallery in school where a host of pupils and visiting artists’ work can be viewed. A virtual gallery is also included in the main Gallery space which shows work from all year groups giving everyone the opportunity to show and celebrate success. Our pupils and staff have had work viewed and exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery London, Tate Gallery London, Royal Academy London and The Saatchi Gallery London.
