Art & Design
Art and Design is a popular subject at Key Stages 4 and 5, with students following the Edexcel specifications. All students are encouraged to work independently, researching and organising information from a range of sources. They are required to record information using a range of materials, recording from both primary and secondary sources. All students are expected to develop their skills in a range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, digital photography and mixed media.
All students are required to research the work of relevant artists, crafts people and designers. Images, style, approach and techniques are then used by the students as inspiration for their own work. Students are required to analyse and evaluate their findings both visually and in written form using a specialist art and design vocabulary, gleaning meaningful personal insights.
Students experiment with images and techniques, making connections to the work of others. They then develop their ideas making at least one outcome.
A large number of GCSE art students opt to take art at A-Level with many A-Level students gaining a place on the local art and design foundation course.
All art work on the website was created by current Key Stage 4 and 5 students.
