Our Class Names

Our classes are named after innovative artists who have pioneered new ways of working in the arts.

Kapoor and Hepworth are both sculptors; Matisse, Klee, O’Keeffe, Haring, Ofili, Hokusai, Hockney, Rousseau, Kusama, Boyce and Riley are painters. Ray is a writer and illustrator of children’s books.

We have named the classes after creative people so that children can identify with people who have been successful in following their dreams and living the life they chose for themselves.

"Thank you for providing the groups for our 'Around the world with Captain Cook' pilots today - and to say how utterly delightful both classes were. Impeccable behaved incredibly sensible, engaged throughout their visit and all in all a real pleasure to work with. We couldn’t have asked for better 'guinea pigs' and I do hope we'll see you all again soon."
