    Our photographers design, record, create and make images in response to the theme and concept. Our learners explore a wide range of historical and contemporary photographers. Students test and develop work by digitally manipulating images in Photoshop. Our photographers understand the complexities of image-making processes. Our students use complex digital processes to develop their personal visual outcomes, and they explore the potential applications of new media with more traditional media and forms of image making.

    All visual investigations are informed by contextual study. All targets are designed and set to help students to develop their understanding of the historical, political and or cultural contexts of photographers and artists' lives and work. Deep learning experiences are nurtured in all individuals because we personalise and negotiate all work targets set for our A-Level students.

    Our learners can confidently critique and explain choices, and they can make connections and justify all their decisions. Our photographers are confident and learn to appreciate and apply the formal elements of art. Students studying Photography at A Level enjoy great group dynamics with their peers and teachers. Students are given time to reflect and time to pose questions and our learners become proactive students.

    Students leave our courses prepared and ready to study at higher education level.
