At KS3, Art & Design work on a carousel system with Food Preparation & Nutrition. This means that every student gets the experience working with a range of materials/processes. This carousel system includes Graphics 3D, Fine Art, Textiles and Food Preparation & Nutrition. Each year students will develop skills in the following areas of the design cycle; research, analysis, design, developmemt, practical, testing and evaluation.
KS3 aims to develop creative individuals and give them an excellent foundation for the GCSE course.
Graphics 3D embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity. We produce a high-quality art & design education that engages, inspires and challenges pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own creative outcomes. We challenge the pupils to think critically as they develop a rigorous understanding of art & design. We are passionate about teaching our students the fundamentals of design as building blocks for future years. Graphics 3D makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. Please see the Curriculum Maps for more detail of the knowledge and skills developed over the KS3 Curriculum.
