Art & Photography

Why is the subject important?

Studying art helps our students with the development of motor skills, communication skills, decision-making, risk-taking and creativity. GCSE art provides challenges for learners at all levels. Art helps connect students with their own culture as well as with the wider world. Having a solid knowledge of a creative subject is also extremely desirable for future employers. We also highlight the importance our subject has on health, wellbeing and life balances outside the world of work and education, and we firmly believe that a strong appreciation of art will enrich the students鈥 lives long after their education at our academy.
