Art and Design AS/A Level at Saint Cecilia's Church of England School
The aims and objectives of the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced GCE in Art and Design are to enable students to develop:
- Intellectual, imaginative, creative and intuitive capabilities
- Investigative, analytical, experimental, practical, technical and expressive skills, aesthetic
- Understanding and critical judgement
- Independence of mind in developing, refining and communicating their own ideas, their own intentions and their own personal outcomes
- An interest in, enthusiasm for and enjoyment of art, craft and design
- Knowledge and experience of real-world contexts and, where appropriate, links to the creative industries, contemporary and past societies and cultures
- An awareness of different roles, functions, audiences and consumers of art, craft and design
During both courses you will have freedom to expand and develop a theme through your own lines of enquiry and explore the subject matter, materials, scale and artists of your choice. Through one to one dialogue we seek to enable you to reach your full potential as an artist. It is hard work, but fun!

Students in the Sixth Form, who are in need of some financial support, may be eligible for the School’s 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. This is the fund which replaces EMA and has been allocated directly, by the Government, to individual Schools to administer. This funding, however, does not replicate EMA and the amount of money available for distribution is much less. Therefore, we are committed to distributing Bursaries to those students with the greatest need. Eligibility for Guaranteed Bursary Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1,200 a year.
This group includes: people in care, care leavers, people claiming income support, disabled young people who receive Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance.
Many students progress to Art Foundation Courses or to Higher Education in a wide variety of fields from Product Design and Fine Art.
This course is particularly suitable for students who wish to pursue art and design at a higher level but who are unsure which area to specialise in. A portfolio including a range of artwork is an essential requirement for entry into higher education art courses.
Institutions are looking for art students who have enquiring minds and an enthusiasm for all aspects of art and design.
