AS Photography at John Colet School

Course description

Students will study the OCR Art and Design Photography syllabus which allows them to work digitally. We use Photoshop to experiment with and manipulate images. Students need to have a camera of their own.

Course content

There is an Externally Set assignment which accounts for 100% of the AS level.

The early release paper will be issued on 1 January and will provide learners with a number of themes. Within the themes, there will be a choice of written and visual starting points, briefs and stimuli.

A response should be based on one of these options. The response will consist of a body of preparation work and a final outcome that takes place under exam conditions. Students have 10 hours to complete their outcome.

Entry requirements

To take GCE AS in Photography students should either have a grade C, or above, at Art GCSE or have a portfolio of images to show the Art teachers. However, we will consider students who show a clear interest in the subject.
