How & When

Year 7 focuses on basic skill building to ensure a strong foundation from which to explore the subject. Key skills such as drawing and painting are re visited and built upon in year 8 and 9 – Art is a skill based subject and skills take practice. Throughout KS3 pupils produce projects in a similar style to GCSE so that those who opt for the subject in year 10 have a good understanding of how to approach their coursework. In KS4 pupils produce highly personalised work and spend year 10 producing projects towards their Component 1 portfolio. These projects start more guided and gradually allow a wider choice of artists and approaches. The last project in year 10 is set up as a mock of the externally set task so that pupils have a chance to experience the controlled practical element they will do in Component 2 of year 11. At the start of year 11 pupils revisit their projects from year 10, improving and selecting work for their portfolios before undertaking the Component 2 externally set task in January.
