GCSE ART AND DESIGN
Controlled Assessment 60%
Led by: Mr S Granger
Exam Board: AQA
What will I be studying?
This exciting, creative and practical GCSE is comprised of two parts. Students will produce a portfolio of Controlled Assessment work; this will add up to 60% of their overall grade. In the Spring Term of Year 11 students will undertake an Externally Set Task, this is a project set by AQA and is worth 40% of their GCSE grade. Students are encouraged during the course to produce project-based work using a variety of different two and three-dimensional media. Students are encouraged to record observations; analyse images/artefacts; develop their own ideas relating to the theme and produce a personal response.
What can I do after wards?
In a world where we are constantly bombarded with visual imagery, visual literacy is increasingly important. A career within the Arts is possible, with hard work, dedication and commitment. This qualification can be studied in Higher Education and can lead successfully to many career paths: designer, animation, freelance artist, advertising, illustration, photographer, film and television, architect, interior designer, textile designer, fashion, teaching and gallery work/curator.

The year 7s attended a basketball tournament last night at Scalby School. Overall it was a very promising performance from the boys that attended. For some of them this was their first time playing basketball and they all thoroughly enjoyed taking part. #TeamGraham pic.twitter.com/tfV8…
