Specification and Assessment:
Art as a subject offers a different type of learning and skills to pupils. It can give more academic pupils a break from subjects who rely heavily on remembering facts and it is essential to many careers. With new advances in technology, creative skills can be useful in TV and media, animation, advertising, game design, engineering, architecture, hairdressing, clothes design and many more.
All GCSE WORK WILL BE ON DISPLAY AT THE END OF THE COURSE AND INVITIATIONS WILL BE SENT OUT FOR ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS TO ATTEND AND CELEBRATE THE SUCCESSES OF THEIR CHILDREN
