A Level

Photography encourages students to develop their own creative ideas and analytical skills. Initially lessons are workshop based to allow students to learn through active experimentation. Students will then use their independent enquiry skills to develop a body of work. Discussion and Group Critique will support students in their journey.

A Level Art and Design and A Level Photography can be taken individually or alongside each other and follow the same structure as one another. Within Photography students will work with traditional and digital light based media.
