Students opt for AQA AS Art, Craft and Design or Photography or Textile Design at KS5 where we currently have one group of AS Art and one of AS Photography. Students are expected to have gained a grade ‘4’ at GCSE level Art or Photography (or similar creative subject such as Textiles or Graphics or Product Design). Students have nine hours of lessons over the 2 weeks. If students are creative, persistent and can use their initiative, these practical courses can open up the students’ potential. Art, Photography and Textiles can be studied to give breadth to other AS subjects or to continue to A Level and each will gain the student points for higher education opportunities. Either subject can be taken with the intention of continuing for two years to gain an A Level for entry to Arts, Media, Architecture or other creative degree courses at University or it may be the student’s pathway to Art College in a wide range of courses, providing the student with the essential portfolio of work for their interview.
