Key Stage 3

In KS3 students study one lesson per week which allows them to develop their skills and knowledge to become creative and analytical artists. Students learn how to observe and recreate the techniques of a range of artists and art movements.Β 

The wide range of media used allows each student to experiment and experience methods in expressing to the viewer the emotions and context of the art.Β  Students use sketchbooks to record the development of their thinking over time; this is a very important part of ensuring rapid and sustained progress.

There is an emphasis on students understanding the art of a wide range of cultures, celebrating their diversity and influences. This provides students with a firm foundation to recreate and expand into their own creative methods of communication.

We obtained Artsmark Gold Award in 2010 and the art staff are committed to providing an engaging and individualised learning experience for its students. At our annual Art Exhibition, we strive to exhibit a piece of work from every student.Β
