Art, Design & Technology
Art & Design
GCSE Art & Design provides students with a wide range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to explore their interest in ways that are personally relevant and developmental in nature.
The two Unit specification enables students to develop the ability to actively engage in the process of Art & Design, to build creative skills, develop imagination and intuitive ways of working and develop knowledge and understanding of media, materials and technologies in historical and contemporary contexts.
Assessment is by Unit 1 – The Portfolio of work 60% and Unit 2 – The Externally Set Task 40%
It is a strong foundation for further progression onto Art & Design related courses such as A level and Art related vocational courses.
