Course description

Our courses encourage individuality and self-expression. You will acquire a wide range of new skills and will learn how to develop your ideas and solve problems in a creative
way, studying the work of past and present practitioners to inform your progress. Your experience will be further enriched by opportunities to work with practising artists and designers and the chance to visit local and national exhibitions.

Course content

This course is ideal for those who like working in a variety of different ways. You will explore a wide range of ideas, media and processes, increasingly specialising in an area of art, craft or design that you love. Specialist areas include: fine art; graphic communication; textile design; fashion design; three-dimensional design; ceramics; photography; film and animation.


GCE A-Level will be assessed on a unit of coursework and a controlled test, completed in Year 13. Year 12 is a fun and experimental year of practical workshops and short
projects, building the necessary skills to succeed. Coursework: you will produce a portfolio of work, investigating an area of personal choice.

Controlled Test: you will produce a body of work in response to a given starting point. You will have approximately ten weeks to develop your ideas before producing your outcome (unaided) in a controlled test (15 hours).
