By the end of KS3 all students in Art and DT will have developed a sound understanding of the basic key skills in both subjects in preparation for GCSE qualifications in KS4. The curriculum allows students of all abilities to make progress in a creative and practical subject area and develop an understanding of the vocational aspects of DT and prepare them for further education and/or the workplace.
The curriculum aims to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. Pupils will cover the skills, techniques and processes to equip them for further study at GCSE and beyond in both Art and Engineering Design.
