Art, Design & Technology
In Art, Design and Technology, we strive to inspire, enthuse and excite students in a creative curriculum, pushing the limitations of self-expression through a variety of different disciplines. Students are provided with a breadth of knowledge and transferable skills that encourage independence, critical thinking and self-confidence. As well as innovative and engaging lessons in school, we boast a wide range of extracurricular opportunities to enthuse students in the limitless possibilities and potential career paths within the creative industry.
The KS3 curriculum provides students with a taste of Art, Design and Technology subjects through the following specialisms. Students will have one lesson of Art a week and one rotational subject.
The expression of creative skills through visual forms and media
The application of design elements and illustration to effectively communicate ideas
The manipulation of clay to explore the formal elements through sculptural design
The exploration of food science and the importance of healthy living
- Three Dimensional Design
The making of a functional and aesthetic product through practical skills and CAD/CAM programing
The creative application, manipulation and process of recording the world through the lens of a camera
The experimentation of materials and surfaces including traditional textile techniques and stitching
GCSE Art, Design and Technology is open to all students who have a passion and enthusiasm for creative making.
The courses we offer require students to demonstrate an independent and self-motivated work ethic. Students must be committed to engage in studies both inside and outside of school. Studying Art, Design and Technology will equip students with a creative skill set and further develop their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the specialism. This subject can also provide essential transferable skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork.
