A grade 5 in GCSE Art/Textiles or Graphics is normally required. If a relevant GCSE has not been taken, students may be admitted via a portfolio of work that demonstrates an appropriate level of skill and commitment.
We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
