Course description

At Advanced Level students work in projects very similar to GCSE but they research, investigate and analyse their subjects in much greater depth. They are expected to explore their own creativity through the development of ideas and the production of independent artwork that is personal to the student and tackles a range of important issues.
If you have a genuine enthusiasm for Art and a commitment to achieving the best you can, we have the ability to support you in your quest for success in this subject.

Course content

The specification for Advanced level Art encourages the use of a wide range of contemporary approaches and we regularly have Fine Art students exploring video, animation and digital media as vehicles for their expression.

Entry requirements

Coursework 60% - Personal Investigation; and Examination 40% - an externally set assignment.
