Art

Art occupies a unique position in the school curriculum. Teaching students to think and act critically and creatively is central to our aims, as is fostering a sense of excitement and possibility, and nurturing pride and achievement.ย ย Students are introduced to a diverse range of historical and contemporary artworks throughout all key stages, developing an understanding and appreciation of visual art essential for todayโ€™s multicultural society.

In Key Stage 3, pupils undertake two thematic units per year setting the foundation for future knowledge and understanding. Each unit is designed to provide an engaging stimulus for pupils to develop their practical, conceptual, and communication skills.ย They cover topics such as drawing, painting, portraiture, printmaking, colour theory, life drawing and sculpture.

In Year 10 students build on previous knowledge by studying the batik process and exploring ceramic sculpture. In Year 11 students choose their own topics and develop work independently to produce a personal response using media of their choice. All coursework is underpinned by contextual research into artists and designers.

In Key Stage 5 students have the option to study,ย  both, A levelย  Art and Photography. The courses enable students to create a portfolio which will prepare them for further education and beyond. Many students choose to undertake a creative pathway and gain places on highly competitive Art Foundation and Photography/Art Degree courses, as well as going onto study Art History and Architecture. Workshops with practising artists and visits to art galleries inspire students throughout the year.

The creative process is key to innovation in modern industry. Studying a creative subject offers many transferable skills such as time management, working within a team, problem solving and idea development, all of which can be applied within many future career opportunities.ย 

A level and GCSE exhibitions alongside Key Stage 3 Art displays in numerous public spaces throughout the school, celebrate the work of all students. Opportunities to enter competitions throughout the year create additional exciting platforms for our students to further enrich their experience alongside KS3 and 4 art clubs and KS5 enrichment opportunities.
