Darrel Sherlock


Art Teacher

Darrel gained his BA (Hons) in 3D Art and Design in 1992, at the Cardiff Institute of HE, Wales, followed by his Qualified Teachers Status at the University of Gloucester, UK. For eighteen years, Darrel ran his own business as a creative studio ceramic artist. In that time, he exhibited at galleries throughout the UK and was a visiting lecturer in ceramics at Falmouth University. He also taught throughout Years 7 to 13 across a range of Art and Design and Technology modules in a school in Oxfordshire, UK.

Darrel's teaching philosophy is to foster and maintain an interest in Art and Design by developing inspiring projects and schemes that motivate and engage his students. He gives special importance to finding the creative spirit in all his students, irrespective of their technical ability, and Darrel believes he has successfully built an excellent rapport with his students. Being a highly experienced 3D designer and maker, he realises the importance of constantly assessing one's work to raise its quality, and this creative approach is how he challenges his pupils, so as to bring higher quality to their work, across all the Key Stages.

Darrel has a first dan in Aikido and an interest in the Argentine tango which he has taught and practised for over ten years. He also has a passion for pottery, woodworking, cooking, alternative and international films, travelling and outdoor activities such as cycling, swimming and walking.
