Vision and Philosophy
This is a map to show the learning journey in Art/Photography from year 6 through to further education and possible careers.
Overview of the learning journey in Photography
In the summer term of year 10 students begin preparation for a mock exam based on the previous year’s externally set theme, past themes have included Fragments, Reflections and Events. They sit the 5 hour mock exam at the end of year 10.
From September students work on their major project Identity; pupils experiment with hand rendering methods over photographs inspired by Rankin’s Destroy project. They also learn how to take self-portraits, beyond the selfie. Finally the Externally Set Assignment; a theme set by the exam board, students have 10 weeks to prepare a project and final idea, then 10 hours in exam conditions to create their piece.
