GCSE Art and Design will introduce you to a variety of materials  and processes in Year 10 including painting, sculpture, textiles, ceramics,  digital imagery and mixed media work.  The Year 11 project is more open allowing you to develop work and specialise in an area of your choice.  All GCSE art and design courses providean ideal foundation for A level, further study, and access to the Art and Design industry.

You will be expected to produce observational drawings, to experiment with materials and study the work of artists to support your coursework and exam.

Students interested in choosing Art and Design need to show an enthusiasm for the subject, a willingness to experiment with different materials and methods, and have the ability to research and develop ideas in their own time as well as during lessons.
