Located in what was formerly the stable block for the Main House, the Pottery Room can accommodate 12 girls comfortably and, as all forms are taught in half classes from Reception, this is an ideal size. Work in progress as well as finished pieces by girls and other artists are on display, and images of other artists’ work can also be seen, providing inspiration and encouragement. There is a book for each girl in her form’s folder, in which visual records of progress are updated and each girl writes an evaluation of her piece on completion.
The adjacent Kiln Room is used to fire the girls’ work, before it goes on display around the school. The Entrance Hall of the Main House and the display outside the School Office are two areas where finished work can be seen.
All girls wear an overall in Art, Design & Technology and Pottery, to protect their uniform.
