Art, Design & Technology


ADT’s aim is to offer the students a curriculum which will engage and enthuse a passion for the subject. Giving them the opportunity to explore practical activities which will enable them to master the skills and secure their knowledge.

We aim to provide the subject specific skills and knowledge as a platform for the students to make their next steps, from KS3 to KS4, then onto a professional career within the Creative sector or further education.

In KS4 during year 11 the department will offer the students the opportunity to start GCSE’s and Btec’s in the following subjects

  • Btec Construction and the Built Environment

  • GCSE Design and Technology (Edexcel)

  • GCSE Art and Design (AQA)

  • GCSE Food and Nutrition (AQA)

  • GCSE Photography (AQA)

Students will be taught in mixed ability groups during two one hour lessons per week.

The aim of Year11 is to further build on the subject specific skills and knowledge developed in year 10 required for the completion of non-examined assessments and exam content.

GCSE subjects will complete the non-examined assessment and end of course examinations
