Here you can find information on courses offered at each key stage, view examples of learners’ work
and keep up to date with events in the department. In Art and Design all learners are given the
opportunity to develop their creative talents in a visual way, using a broad range of media and
processes. Learners will be encouraged to appreciate their environment (natural, built and human)
and use it as a rich source of stimuli to be recorded and developed in their artwork. We have two
dedicated art studios and another multi-purpose room, all of which are well equipped to carry out
ceramics, printing, painting and drawing and textile work.

WJEC GCSE Art & Design has been designed for a wide range of candidates. It is particularly suitable for
those who enjoy painting, drawing, print-making, constructing, modelling, fabricating, making, investigating,
handling traditional and/or contemporary media, materials, techniques and tools, inventing, improvising,
planning and designing and using historical and contemporary influences and references.
However, learners’ work ethic and attitude will determine their success as they will be expected to work to
strict deadlines and to take responsibility for researching, planning, organising, experimenting, making and
completing their work to the best of their ability.
Parents should expect to see quality homework/coursework being completed on a weekly basis.
