A2 Photography at John Colet School

Course description

Students will study the OCR Art and Design Photography syllabus which allows them to work digitally. We use Photoshop to experiment with and manipulate images. Students need to have a camera of their own.

Course content

Learners should produce two elements:
(i) a portfolio of practical work showing their personal response to either a starting point, brief, scenario or stimulus, devised and provided by the learner or centre
(ii) a related study: an extended response of a guided minimum of 1000 words.

Component 02: Externally set task

  •  The early release paper will be issued on 1 February and will provide learners with a number of themes, each with a range of written and visual starting points, briefs and stimuli.
  •  A response should be based on one of these options.

Entry requirements

To take GCE in Photography students should either have a grade C, or above, at Art GCSE or have a portfolio of images to show the Art teachers. However, we will consider students who show a clear interest in the subject


A level work on an individually chosen project that includes a related study.
