Art scholarships

Art plays an important role in a pupils’ education at City. Our unique location within the Barbican, with close proximity to many galleries, is embraced by our art scholars through our many trips, visits and opportunities for independent study. Our airy, well-equipped studios which look out onto St Paul’s Cathedral provide a unique space to develop artistic ability 

Please note that it is a requirement of 11+ art scholars to select art as one of their GCSE subjects.
