Gloucester Academy Learning & Education

Art, Design, & Photography

The art, design, and photography department at Gloucester Academy aims to introduce students to the most varied forms of human creativity. We believe that students should be inspired and challenged, becoming equipped with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent, and create their own works of art, craft, and design.

As pupils progress through years 8 and 9, they are presented with a set of projects and encouraged to explore a wide range of creative disciplines. Students are taught to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design in order to produce original and independent work. Becoming independent learners who are not afraid of making creative mistakes is an integral part of preparing for GCSE art.

Students should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity, and wealth of our world.
