Calling all OGs who work in the creative industry!
Wednesday, 1 March 2023
The Art department at Wakefield Girls' High School prides itself on providing a holistic experience in order to develop a students own individual creative visual voice. We are an inclusive department recognising that everyone can create art if nurtured in the correct way. We are delighted with our consistently high results and work within the community, not to mention the incredible alumni that we pride ourselves on. 

As the creative economy continues to grow at one of the fastest rates across the globe and more of our students are seeking to become a part of this exciting time of growth, I would like to invite the creative alumni to help inspire, forge links and impart knowledge about your creative pathways to success. I am often asked, mainly by parents, well what can I do with a degree in Art other than be a teacher?!

If you are able to give a little of your time to help answer this question then I would really like to hear from you. It may be that you could produce a short recording, we could hold an interview, you may wish to visit the school or run a workshop or perhaps just be a point of contact for our outstanding creative students. We look forward to hearing from you soon and inspiring the next generation of creative thinkers, please email

Please see below for a selection of recent artwork completed by our current students.
