Our ideal is based on the recognition of the universal human need for visual communication. Central to this is our commitment to provide an environment in which pupils will develop aesthetic and evaluative skills: the ability to express themselves artistically. Pupils will be introduced to a variety of media, techniques and critical studies that develop, challenge, enhance and contribute to creative thinking, problem solving and individual expression. We follow the AQA full course GCSE syllabus. You can find a link to that here http://tinyurl.com/6yn929p if you have any further questions or enquiries, please get in touch at [email protected]
