Art & Design
At Arden students are given the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge throughout the Key Stages in Art and Design.
During KS3 students cover a wide range of themes and skills. We believe it is important that the projects covered are as flexible and creative as possible to suit the needs of all learners as well as challenge our students to achieve their potential in Art and Design.
At KS4 students are given the opportunity to study for a GCSE in Art and Design.
Courses offered at KS5 include A Level Art and Design: Fine Art and A Level Photography.
If you would like further information about the Art and Design curriculum please contact Mrs Astle, Head of Art and Photography.
