We aim to give students a broad experience in art, following the English National Curriculum (ENC), developing confidence through exploration of materials, 思想和解决问题的. Students will study the work of a variety of artists as well as working in 2D media and 3D construction.
在KS3, students begin their Art and Design education by looking at one topic per term, 涵盖了艺术的基础, 视觉元素(如线条), 语气, 模式, form and colour) and how we view art work. This is an opportunity for the students to learn new skills, experiment with and gain a basic understanding of different media and techniques with which to visually communicate their ideas.

With each new year they will develop skills further as well as building on former knowledge and experience.
Art and Design iGCSE is a practical course that allows students to build on and explore, 更深入地, a variety of 2D and 3D art materials and techniques.
