Art GCSE at Sir Harry Smith Community College

Course description

Art is a popular and successful option at GCSE where the emphasis encourages an adventurous and enquiring approach to Art and developing skills to express a personal response. During Years 10 and 11 students work on two major project units. This follows a similar pattern to the work at Key Stage 3 of working in journals and producing finished pieces of work. This is the coursework part of the course which is worth 60% of the total marks. At the end of Year 11 students will take a ten hour timed test to determine the remaining 40%.

Future opportunities

You could take this course to prepare for advanced level courses such as an A/AS Level in Art and Design or you may need to strengthen your grades by completing a foundation or intermediate vocational qualification.
