Within Year 9 Art and Textiles students prepare themselves for GCSE option selection. Students have the opportunity to undertake GCSE style projects and are given greater independence in our work and ownership over outcomes. Students continue to learn through a wide range of practical experiences and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of sources that inform their own personal creative intentions. As students progress, they start to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of Art and Design, whilst exploring contextual links, artists, history and cultures that are selected on a personal level.
