    Our fine artists have enjoyed great success over the first 3 years of the new Fine Art A Level course. Students create exceptional work sequences because projects are personalised, engaging and relevant for our learners. We encourage and expect all students to combine a wide range of media, and they must develop ongoing contextual studies over the course to support and inform all decisions they make. Justifying choices and understanding how to set and write personal learning objectives is imperative. Students develop high level practical skills in the specialist areas of drawing, painting and mixed media. Intervention strategies are set in place to help students develop key skills.

    Regular targets are set through dialogue and debate between staff and students. All work targets at this level are designed and negotiated for the individual’s learning needs and experience. Our ultimate goal is to develop creative forward-thinking learners and all of our schemes of learning are written to support and nurture artistic understanding and development. Our students become very confident, organised learners.

    Students studying Fine Art at A Level enjoy a creative group dynamic with their peers and teachers and have the opportunity to take part in a number of superb educational visits including to the USA. Critical discussion is regular.

    Where will this course lead to?

    Our students become proactive learners and practitioners and step in to higher level visual arts degree courses throughout the UK.
