At Key Stage Three we focus on building student’s creativity and practical skills. Observational work forms the basis for exploration of media and processes.
Our art block consists of four large rooms, one with 20 computers for students to use. We also have a separate media suite equipped with 15 Mac computers and a dedicated photography studio with screens and lighting equipment. Our computers all have the latest version of Adobe Photoshop installed to support students with digital editing. We also have a bank of DSLR cameras which we can loan out to students for homework tasks.
We offer GCSE and A Level courses in both art and photography We follow the OCR exam board for both our GCSE and A Level qualifications.
