Art & Design


"GCSE Art and Design provides students with a wide range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to explore their interests in ways that are both personally relevant and developmental in nature" AQA Subject Details


As a school we currently have schemes in place to enter our young people for both ELC & GCSE qualifications via AQA. Pupils have been entered regularly for both these subjects with extremely positive results.  The course of study that we offer is open and flexible providing opportunities to engage young people in the subject through a large variety of possible mediums and subjects. Within the school we have a system of continual modernisation and the new technologies we have acquired allow us focus on the creation of digital art.


As a teacher it is important to me that pupils are engaged with the subject and to this end significant time goes into discovering their interests and the ways in which these can be applied to their course of study. Woodlands is not simply a school but a caring environment and as such the self esteem and confidence of my pupils is paramount. Our students take genuine and obvious pride in their artistic achievements and their continued development and progression is evident within their portfolios which are painstakingly presented to the best possible standard for assessment. Communication, self reflection and self expression are key elements of the subject each of which are important to the development of any healthy young person.
