Art and Design

In Art, we follow a rotation curriculum model within the art department allowing the students to get a wide and varied focus of foundation skills, and experience different teaching styles and specialisms. In Year 8 the curriculum allows students to build on their prior knowledge from Year 7 and develop their skills throughout the year. This could lead to Art being chosen as a choice of subject at KS4.

Our aim is to provide a varied, but skilled education package which will enable students to develop a love of the subject and understand how to skilfully use a variety of media when painting and drawing.  Through visual language, they will learn how to look deeper into the visual aspects of an image and analyze the thoughts, meanings and emotions that surround it. They will also be able to make informed choices about media, materials and themes from their own perspectives.
