Our aim is to enthuse students with a passion for the Creative Arts that will last a lifetime, opening minds to possibility and wonder. The Creative Arts are a crucial part of education. Creativity is critical thinking and as such the arts allow students to discover, engage and grow in exciting and beneficial ways.
Students will follow the AQA GCSE in Art, Craft & Design
This course promotes learning across a variety of experiences and through various processes, tools, techniques, materials and resources to generate different kinds of evidence of working and outcomes.
