Art & Design at Iceni Academy

Course description

A-level Art and Design provides students with opportunities to develop personal responses to ideas, observations, experiences, environments and cultures in practical, critical and contextual forms.

This four-unit specification, two at AS level and two at A2, requires students to develop their ability to show a range of skills. These include:

  • independence of mind in developing their own ideas
  • an interest and enthusiasm for art and design
  • the experience of working with a range of media, including traditional and new media and technologies
  • an awareness of different roles, functions, audiences and consumers of art and design practice.

We offer six endorsements for this qualification: Art, Craft and Design; Fine Art; Graphic Communication; Textile Design; Three-Dimensional Design; Photography (lens and light based media).

There are two externally set tasks which account for 50 per cent of the qualification. The tasks are set by AQA, marked by the school or college and moderated by AQA.

This course is particularly suitable for students who wish to study Art and Design or related subjects at a higher level or who wish to pursue a career in the Arts.

Entry requirements

5 A* - C including English and Maths. Must have a C in the subject they wish to study, except Science and Maths which require a B.
