Art Department Overview

All students study Art & Design at Key Stage 3 and they have the choice for further study at KS4. Throughout each Key Stage we aim to promote a broad understanding and appreciation of the visual world through making art, engaging with, analysing and reflecting upon the art work of contemporary artists, photographers, craftspeople, designers. At KS3 and KS4 students are given a broad approach into exploring images and artefacts that balance with the making of art that are relevant to today’s world. The very nature of our subject allows the teacher to contribute to the intellectual, emotional, social, physical and spiritual development of students.

KS4 Overview

The department follows the WJEC GCSE syllabus for Art, Craft and Design. Students are taught in mixed ability groups. This gives us the freedom to teach GCSE Art & Design in ways that inspire and bring out the best in all students, whilst equipping them with the skills to continue the subject with confidence at A-level and beyond. The flexibility of its design means we can tailor our course to your students’

interests and our department’s strengths. Teachers teach to inspire, challenge and motivate every student, no matter what their level of ability, while supporting you in developing creative and engaging lessons.

Students are taught in 5 hours a fortnight.
