Art and Design

The course consists of a two year GCSE Fine Art Course (Exam Board AQA). Key Stage 4 involves the study of Portraiture and Natural Forms. Pupils create a Portfolio of work with sketchbooks consisting of exploration of media and research of their chosen artists. There is also a final exam. The course demands a high level of commitment due to the quality of the research needed during independent study to enable students to reach their aspirational target grades.
