The Art department covers several endorsements: Art & Design, Textiles and Photography. We are well equipped and have our own computer suite with A3 printers and scanners, enabling students access to information and technology during their lessons.

We work to provide students with the opportunity to experience a wide variety of materials and processes. The department has good ceramics equipment and will be encouraging students at all key stages to participate in some 3D work. This is an exciting time for us in the Art department as we have recently introduced GCSE Textiles and Photography. This allows us to explore both traditional techniques and more abstract mixed media work both in 2D and 3D, enabling students to have a broader experience.

Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3 students work on developing key art skills such as drawing and painting over two years. They also get the opportunity to explore printing and working in 3D. Students work in an A4 sketchbook and produce supporting studies on A3 paper relating to a theme. Homework is often contextual research and observational drawing practice.

Key Stage 4

Key Stage 4 is where students get more opportunity to work independently, to a theme that is set both by the teachers and the Edexcel exam board. The main objectives for students to meet are based around artist studies, experimenting with materials, observation work and producing large scale final pieces of artwork. Students will produce 3 projects over the 3-year course and the course culminates with a 2-day practical exam in year 11. The art department likes to celebrate the success of the students by having an annual exhibition usually held in the main school hall.

GCSE students are invited to attend the Art Café every Tuesday after school where they are given the opportunity to mix with other GCSE students across all of the Art endorsements and share ideas and work on their projects, whilst enjoying tea and biscuits!
