Key Stage 3 & 4
Throughout KS3, as well as producing their own artwork, pupils look at the work of a range of artists and learn how to understand contemporary art and artefacts and those from other cultures. They are encouraged to participate in discussion and develop the confidence to express opinion and make judgements about their own work and that of others.
Art is a non-examination subject. Pupils so enjoy their work that we have arranged for one 70 minute lesson per week for Year 10 pupils so that those who want to continue further can build up a portfolio as evidence of work covered.
