The Firs School

About This School

The Firs School has a proud tradition of taking part at a high level within the creative arts. Art and DT have their own designated spaces in a fully equipped classroom with high level work spaces. The school also has its own ceramics room with kiln and class sets of Chromebooks to encourage digital artistic design. The Firs School enters local and national exhibitions and competitions and this year had particular success with its first place in computer animation in the ISA's National Competition which involved over 400 schools. Pupils use sketchbooks and are encouraged to take inspiration from the areas directly around them, using our beautiful grounds for stimulus as well as school visits to regional landmarks and galleries. Each year we create a whole school exhibition which we proudly display at the Racecourse before putting up in school. The Firs school is an inspirational primary school delivering exceptional learning and the creative arts are very much part of its success.
