Key Stage 3 Overview
Defining, exploring and developing the use of visual elements with increasing knowledge of their use by a range of artists: line, tone, colour, shape, form, texture and space.
Consolidating knowledge of visual elements and visual principles and development of skill in using them personally: balance, emphasis, movement, pattern, unity, flatness and composition through four main assignments based on the visual language of carefully selected artists, supported by shorter projects as necessary.
Increasing independence in using visual elements and visual principles to explore own ideas in production of visual art within a thematic approach through three main assignments, supported by shorter projects as necessary.
Key Stage 4 Overview
Year 10: Students undertake a foundation course in five different disciplines: painting, ceramics, graphics, textiles, photography, providing opportunities to explore associated media, processes and contextual artists. Students choose one of these to develop into a fuller outcome or series of outcomes.
Year 11: Students undertake an extended assignment – man-made – that explores a range of contextual references and media and processes. The final outcome is undertaken in a ten hour mock examination.
Students undertake an extended assignment chosen from five starting points provided by the examination board and completed in ten hours of examination conditions.
Sixth Form Overview:
Assignments provide the starting points for individual development. Contextual references support this as does the completion of media workshops. Written texts allow students the opportunity of contextualising their work in-depth.
