Welcome to the

Art & Design Department


To highlight Refugee Week 2021, Mrs Dempsey and our Year 7 students read a poem on the side of a mysterious suitcase, which appeared in the amphitheatre and responded to the question "what would you take with you from home if you had to leave quickly?"

This suitcase and poem were first used in 2015 to highlight the plight of the refugees leaving Syria and their dangerous journey across water. This more recently follows the great assembly about the refugee Olympic team and refugee week.



Students at Kelmscott School follow the National Curriculum for England taught in all secondary maintained schools.
