Art & Design: Photography

Students learn to push boundaries and develop an exciting range of new skills and techniques during the study of this subject. Traditional darkroom photography leads to toning and colouring images which can be combined with digital imagery via Photoshop. Students experiment with digital negatives, painting on developer, sun prints and toning and colouring black and white prints. Digital media is explored and taken forward with the evolution of two and three dimensional work which can incorporate textile media, foam board, glass, mirrors and wood. Starting points are taken from contextual studies of inspirational photographers and artists.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
