Art and Pottery


Art is an important part of life at Port Regis from Year 8 down to the Pre-Prep. The children learn to draw, paint, make prints and work in three dimensions, thus gaining confidence with a wide range of media. A particular strength of ours is ceramics and children become familiar with slab and coil construction and clay modelling.

Subjects explored in recent years include:

  • African masks
  • Card sculpture
  • Fish and sea creatures
  • Flowers from the school grounds
  • Local and world architecture
  • Maritime art
  • Oriental art
  • Pop art
  • Pueblo pottery

In recent years, Port Regis pupils have won Art scholarships to (in alphabetical order): Ampleforth, Bryanston, Canford, Charterhouse, Downside, King’s Canterbury, King's Ely, Marlborough, Millfield, Oundle, Sherborne, Sherborne Girls, St Edward’s Oxford, St Mary’s Shaftesbury, Stowe, Tonbridge and Wellington.

The Head of Department is Simon Latham, who has a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Oxford.

If anyone is going to bring out what your child is good at, Port Regis will.
