The course follows the AQA Examinations Board specification.Assessment is by Controlled Assessment (Coursework) 60% and an Examination (40%) taken at the end of Year 11.Enquiry questions at the start of each theme engage students with what it means to be an active citizen and the role of citizenship in relation to current issues that impact on modern society.
We are also very excited about a forthcoming trip to Barcelona for A level students and for GCSE a visit to The Pitt Rivers museum and Oxford university natural history museum.
Y9 also have the chance to go to the British Ceramics Biennial.
During Year 9 it is important for students to build up a more sustained approach to project work, so that a body of work is produced rather like a GCSE unit.
This will prepare students well, for GCSE coursework the following year.
Homework is essential and much is based on the use of a Revision Guide and Workbook which all students are provided with.
Unit 1: Written Paper 40% of total marks 2 hours 120 marks Candidates answer all questions in two sections Pre-Release material issued Unit 2: Design and Making Practice 60% of total marks Approximately 45 hours 90 marks Consists of a single design and make activity selected from a range of board set tasks For assessments and subject awards after June 2013 there is a requirement that 100% of the assessment is terminal.
We aim to ensure that art is both a challenging and enjoyable experience.
