Key Stage 5


TAUGHT BY STAFF WITH A RANGE OF ART SPECIALISMS.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

Students will learn techniques and develop existing skills both with the support of their teachers and independently. It will be important for students to use the Art facilities outside of timetabled lessons to develop work and ideas further. Throughout the A-level course, students will need to visit exhibitions and galleries to extend their knowledge of the work of others and develop ideas and inspiration. Students will also receive the opportunity to either work with practising artists or visit exhibitions organised by the department. Teachers will support students’ development of their work through group discussions and individual tutorials.

 

DEPARTMENT STRENGTHS AND RESOURCES

Students will have the opportunity to be taught by Art and Design staff with a range of different Art specialisms. Art staff are available to assist students with their work both during and outside of lessons. Students are encouraged to use the Art facilities during lunchtime and after school sessions and during their free time.

 

PROGRESSION TO UNIVERSITY

QUOTE FROM PREVIOUS STUDENT

“The Art and Design course is very independent and is personal to each individual as many decisions are made by the students. Having three teachers allows the development and manipulation of different techniques, making each student’s work unique and well-rounded.

Your overall knowledge is enhanced over the two years, which prepares you for further education or a career. I have found this course very rewarding and exciting as it can open so many doors for me in the near future and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in any aspect of Art and Design.”

Eilish Fitzpatrick, A2 2010-12
