Art and Design

Head of Department: Mrs J Riley

Art is a popular subject which allows the pupils to be creative through use of 2d and 3d outcomes. Pupils benefit from first hand study, exciting projects which form building blocks and skills in KS3 to pupils becoming independent, confident learners at KS4.Pupils have the use of well-equipped art rooms, access to ICT and photography which promotes cross curricular links.

As part of enrichment, pupils will be expected to attend twilight sessions and complete work at home in order to complete tasks.

Students who are passionate about Art and are successful in gaining a grade 5/6 in Art at GCSE and grade 4 in English can take advanced studies at our 6th form to study Art which can then lead to further education or employment in the following sectors – Advertising, Architecture, Art and antiques, Crafts, Design, Designer fashion, Film and video, Interactive leisure software, Music, The Performing arts, Publishing, Software and computer services, Television and radio.
