Controlled Assessment 60%
Led by: Mr S Granger
Exam Board: AQA
Please note: This course and the Graphic Design and Textiles courses are based on the same awarding code. Only one choice can be made between them. They cannot be taken together.
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 afterwards?
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.

Y9 students were invited to breakfast today. They all had an excellent year and are great role models! Miss Robins enjoyed hearing about career aspirations: dentist, lawyer, journalist, actor, teacher(we hope at #TeamGraham!), B&B proprietor and plans to go to university! 🥐👏🤩 pic.twitter.com/6TGx…
