1 Here you can find information on courses offered at each key stage, view examples of learners’ work and keep up to date with events in the department. In Art and Design all learners are given the opportunity to develop their creative talents in a visual way, using a broad range of media and processes. Learners will be encouraged to appreciate their environment (natural, built and human) and use it as a rich source of stimuli to be recorded and developed in their artwork. We have two dedicated art studios and another multi-purpose room, all of which are well equipped to carry out ceramics, printing, painting and drawing and textile work. “Creativity is contagious, pass it on” - Albert Einstein Gallery Websites Key Stage 4 Key Stage 5 To view information and learners’ work – double click on the link buttons and gallery icons.

2 WJEC GCSE Art & Design has been designed for a wide range of candidates. It is particularly suitable for those who enjoy painting, drawing, print-making, constructing, modelling, fabricating, making, investigating, handling traditional and/or contemporary media, materials, techniques and tools, inventing, improvising, planning and designing and using historical and contemporary influences and references. However, learners’ work ethic and attitude will determine their success as they will be expected to work to strict deadlines and to take responsibility for researching, planning, organising, experimenting, making and completing their work to the best of their ability. Parents should expect to see quality homework/coursework being completed on a weekly basis. Below is an outline of the assessment for the two year course.
