Art and Design: Photography A level at Sir Bernard Lovell School

Course description

The specification encourages students to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of digital photographic techniques and some traditional processes. In addition, the course encourages candidates to gain an understanding of a range of relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to photography over time, including European and non-European examples. The Photography course begins with a series of structured enquiry workshops that will explore and experiment with observations, ideas and materials, encouraging the development of both analytical and expressive skills. Students will use digital portfolios throughout the course as a place to experiment, explore ideas and document their progress. During the course students will be assessed on their ability to develop ideas, experiment with processes, make personal observations and produce final images.

Future opportunities

AS level Art and Design: Photography is the appropriate qualification for progression onto the A2 Photography course. A2 level Art and Design: Photography is accepted as an appropriate qualification for entry onto the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design. Some students do choose to apply direct to university degree courses from A2, although for art and design subjects many universities ask for students to complete the Foundation Diploma course first.
