Students are able to build their coursework around any theme of their choice.
This provides opportunities to work towards preferred specialisms such as textiles, sculpture or photography and gives flexibility to build upon the interests and strengths of each student.
This course will make you a great creative thinker and you will be able to construct your photographic images so that they contain high visual appeal and visual communication.
In this way you will be able to carve out your desired career in photography.
In addition, we offer catch-up sessions after school on Thursdays for GCSE and A-level students, each week and during half term holidays to target students who need the time and space to continue their creativity out of lesson time.
There are murals in the department and installations in school which have been created by after-school and lunchtime Key Stage 3 clubs and we also took part in the ‘Herd’ project last year, with our elephant being proudly displayed in Sheffield’s ‘Crucible’ theatre.
The final project will be an externally set assignment worth 40% of the final mark.
This will begin on January 1st in Year 11 from a range of starting points issued by the exam board.
Each project is assessed according to four Assessment Objectives, and you will be regularly assessment to help you to monitor your progress.
This will enable you to make improvements during DIRT time if you need to.
