Art at Merchant Taylors' Boys' School
Creative and independent thinkers are encouraged to pursue the A Level course. There is a growing demand for graduates with strong specialist art and design skills in industry and the media, and the A Level course focuses firmly on the development of personal interests in Art that can be subsequently used to pursue careers in Architecture, Animation, Graphic Design, the Fashion Industry, Textiles and Advertising. But self-expression is sufficient reason in itself to study Art and the course fosters research and analytical skills that complement a broad range of other A Level subjects
Teaching is in small groups and A Level students are encouraged to work in the department in private study periods and at lunchtime, when guidance continues to be offered by members of the department. Students are encouraged to display their work in local exhibitions and national competition, while all around the School examples of original and A Level work are displayed for us to admire the craft and skill involved as well as to inspire a belief in and dedication to the aesthetic.
Minimum of 6 Bs at GCSE
