We follow the AQA syllabus, offering a wide range of experiences in lots of different medias using various processes.
Yr 10 complete 3 projects as part of Unit 1 where students are encouraged to develop their own ideas, building on their strengths and preferences. As always artist research plays a vital part and forms the foundation for each project. Each student creates a personal journey using sketchbooks both in class and as extended learning at home.
Yr 11 complete a mock exam which provides experience in completing a timed assessment under exam conditions. This then forms the last component of Unit 1.
Unit 2 is the externally set task and allows students the choice of several starting points which will enable them to showcase their best work.
