Overview of Key Stage 4 Curriculum
Girls are able and encouraged to study GCSE Art & Design, which consists of one full topic and one smaller topic. Throughout the course, the girls’ work will revolve around development, experimentation in media and concepts, observation, and presentation. As part of this course, photography can be studied but is not currently offered as a separate subject at this level.
What makes the department unique from those at other schools?
The girls work within an environment that is tailored as much as possible to suit their personal development in Art & Design. Our studios are open until 21:30 each evening for girls in examination groups to take advantage of the excellent art facilities. Principally we think it is mainly our emphasis on experimentation within a climate of individual support that makes our Art Department unique. Amongst parents, the work produced by girls in the department is consistently noted for its originality, depth of knowledge, and special quality.
