Art & Design
The A Level course in Art and Design gives students the opportunity to explore their ideas through an incredibly broad range of materials, techniques and processes.
Pupils are encouraged to push the boundaries of their art and to take risks with their work within a supportive and nurturing environment.
The work produced is of the highest quality with pupils being ambitious with scale and adventurous with subject matter, informed by the work of other artists and embedded in the History of Art.
The students work with given themes and are encouraged and supported to find the most suitable direction for their work, whether through painting, sculpture, printmaking, design or textiles.
We believe that giving the pupils the opportunity to experience work first hand, at art galleries and museums, listening to artists speaking at conferences, taking part in life drawing classes and being responsible for displaying their own work at our major annual art exhibition as being intrinsic to their work and practice.
A high proportion of our students go on to take up places on pre-degree foundation courses and art-related degree courses
