Art

Art and Design

Subject Overview

Pupils are taught to develop their creativity and ideas; they increase proficiency in their application of skills and demonstrate independent learning. Pupils develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.

In key stage 4, pupils have an option of choosing Art and Design for one of their options.

Using the skills and knowledge gained in key stage 3, pupils are encouraged to work independently to complete two units of project work. In the past the Art department collaborated with the local and London artists who worked with GCSE pupils on developing and deepening their knowledge and enthusiasm for photography and sculpture.
