Art and Design GCSE at Warlingham School

Course description

A two year course leading to a GCSE in Art and Design (Unendorsed). This GCSE encourages an adventurous and enquiring approach to Art and Design. Successful students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of past and contemporary art and design practice and be able to produce a personal response that embraces a range of ideas. The course will consist of two units of coursework (60%) and an externally set assignment (40%). Through these units the students will undertake visual research and will explore, develop and realise their own ideas. They will learn how to use a range of media and materials and will develop their understanding of the work of other artists and designers from different times and cultures. Visits to Art Galleries and Museums will be arranged and encouraged. The disciplines offered by the Art Department include drawing and painting, printmaking, mixed media, textiles, clay and three-dimensional work. How will I be assessed? Coursework will be internally assessed throughout the two year course. At the end of year 10 they will take a 5 hour examination. In Year 11 they will take a mock examination of 10 hours and will have the final externally set examination (10 hours) in May. All coursework and examination work will be displayed in the Art Exhibition in June when it will be internally assessed and externally moderated by AQA to give their final grade.
