Art and Design
“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”
Art and Design is a compulsory subject for KS3 and is currently taught once a week in a double lesson for Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9. Students in Year 10 and Year 11 study the AQA GCSE Art and Design course; this is taught across three lessons per week at Year 10 and four lessons per week at Year 11. Art and Design is also taught at primary level once a week to all year groups.
Our pupils will be able to show distinctive skills in their ability to make, record and manipulate in visual and/or tactile form. They will be able to interpret, critically appraise, problem solve, take risks and develop information, materials thought and ideas. They will show the tenacity and ability to imagine, create and express in visual and/or tactile form in order to make a unique and original contribution to Art and Design.
