Art & Design varies at KS4 and we aim to provide whichever endorsement is wanted by our students.
GCSE Textiles, Fine Art & BTEC Level 2 First Award in Art & Design have all been delivered which huge success.
GCSE Art & Design covers a huge range of skills which have been embedded through KS3 and are now expanded and developed in more detail in year 10 and 11.
Project themes begin with ‘Natural Form’ which is 3D based, ‘Collections’ which is more fine art orientated with more focus on drawing skills, and then a more open
theme ‘all about me’ which allows students to focus their portfolio unit on something they are interested in using their strengths within a range of media for the best coursework result (60% of the course).
The following unit is the set task where students choose a starting point from the exam paper and develop an outcome of their choice covering the 4 marked objectives,
the outcome of which is executed in examination conditions in 10 hours.
