Art Design & Photography is in the Alderwood curriculum for the following important reasons:

1. Discovering potential talents through wide ranging challenges
2. Exploring the visual traditions of different times and cultures 
3. Developing personal confidence through discussion and presentations

We believe that everyone can achieve the highest standards through effort and by engaging with each new challenge. Homework is critical each week and designed to extend knowledge and understanding.

We offer AQA Art & Design and Photography courses and these can lead on directly to further study and many exciting career pathways.

The Art Rooms are open at break times and after school for extra work. We are building strong working links with our Infant and Junior schools through dynamic collaborations with museums, galleries and community challenges.
