Introduction to the Department

The Art Department at St Peters is a warm and welcoming environment, where all students are treated as individuals and given the opportunity to excel in their own right. Celebration of achievement is encouraged and Schemes of Work are designed to engage all ability levels.

Key Stage 5 Information

A Level Art and Design is delivered using the Eduqas exam board.

Year 12 (AS Level)

Students will spend the autumn and spring term developing their repertoire of skills, which will build on practice at GCSE.  All students will be given the opportunity to use paint, explore drawing, understand print and use materials to create three-dimensional work.  Students will be given the opportunity to work independently as well as in groups.  In the summer term, students will identify a particular interest and begin developing work that will lead towards their coursework unit (Component 1 - Personal Investigation).

Year 13 (A Level)

Students complete two units of work:

Component 1 - Personal Investigation (60%)

Component 2 - Externally Set Task (40%) both internally set and externally moderated

The Eduqas A Level in Art and Design has been designed to provide engaging and innovative creative learning experiences where art, craft and design practice is meaningfully integrated with theoretical knowledge and understanding.

The specification provides learners with opportunities to develop a broad foundation of critical, practical and theoretical skills that offers students a holistic understanding of a range of practices and contexts in the visual arts, crafts and design fields, culminating in greater specialism and achievement.
