Key Stage 5
Students have nine lessons a fortnight, including one double lesson. They are taught by both art teachers. In this key stage students are encouraged to take ownership of their creative direction. They will continue to learn new skills and develop their understanding of practitioners and their own work and research other sources of inspiration. We will also challenge their perception and ways of seeing.
