There is always a good atmosphere in the art room, a lot of freedom but guidance if and when you need it.

What it Means to be a SCHS Art Scholar

Our scholars are girls in whom we see exceptional talent or potential . Our Art scholars are invited to participate in scholar-specific workshops and tips as well as all SCHS Art events, which include:

  • Regular trips to London galleries
  • Annual SCHS exhibition
  • Life drawing classes for Sixth Form

Just as we nurture their artistic talent and provide unique, door-opening opportunities, our scholars also serve as role models to inspire and encourage others in the school and the wider community, whether its leading our Christmas Art competitions or Art clubs and special assemblies.


  • Large main art studio and separate Sixth Form art studio
  • Suite of Mac computers
  • High specification cameras

Our Staff

Miss Baker has been an art a teacher for 22 years, 19 of these at SCHS. Before teaching in schools, she made her own paintings during the daytime and taught life drawing in the evenings. Her special interest is in painting and she encourages the girls to keep on drawing and painting as much as possible, especially from life; the best way to improve your skills in Art is to do more Art! She is also very keen for everyone to visit lots of museums and art galleries, wherever they are, at home in London or on holiday.
