Art Curriculum Intent Education in Art is essential to the development of humankind. This development refers to progress in physical, emotional, intellectual and social behaviours and understanding. Creation is what sets the human race apart from all other species. The reward and significance art making is based in creation of something which has never existed before. This is made possible by fostering the desire to create and developing the skills that are needed. In Art and Design lessons students will gain skills, knowledge, inspiration, and enjoyment whilst being exposed to the work of artists, new media, techniques and themes. As Henri Matisse said, “Creativity takes courage”. With this in mind, lessons are planned to include INQUISITVE discussions and research into Art history. Projects are developed to include REFLECTIVE checkpoints. Students will learn that failure is a natural part of the creative process and they will review and refine techniques until they are successful. The ability to be FLEXIBLE and to think around different situations will help to build independent thinking and the ability to broaden their practical skills. AMBITIOUS efforts and projects are celebrated. As a result, CONFIDENT students move closer to developing and appreciating the COURAGOUS attitude that artists need. KEY STAGE 3 ART & DESIGN The Key Stage 3 curriculum within Art & Design will provide students with a broad set of skills by exploring the Formal Elements of Art through different subject matter and media. A wide range of artists and contexts are investigated and analysed through research, discussions and practical work. Students will work on recording and presenting their skills in sketchbooks. As they evaluate, review and refine their work, they develop ideas and vocabulary that equip them for interactions beyond the Art Room. Introductions to processes, keywords, research, drawing, painting, 3D, Printmaking and Photography provides all students with a solid foundation on which to build at Key Stage 4. KEY STAGE 4 ART & DESIGN Art & Design at Key Stage 4 level builds on the foundation of knowledge and skills gained in Key Stage 3. Sustained projects that are thematic (versions of Still Life, Graphics and Portraiture) will allow them to learn to use a variety of media as well as develop more individual ideas and explore their own choice of subject matter. This provides all students with a solid foundation on which to build at Key Stage 5. KEY STAGE 5 ART & DESIGN As students will come with a range of experiences from studying GCSE: Art/ Photography/ Textiles, or without skills having given up Art at the end of year 8, the beginning of the course is very structured. Students undertake an intensive number of sessions to develop skills and different approaches to drawing, painting and printmaking. In Art & Design at Key Stage 5 students will investigate their own ideas. Through their choice of theme, bespoke support in research and guidance will help them to broaden their knowledge and create independent sustained projects of a personal nature. This provides all students with a solid foundation on which to build if they pursue a career in the Arts

Drama Curriculum Intent In Drama we aim to: Develop resilience through group work, taking risks and developing an understanding of their own personal values and abilities. Understand a variety of theatre and its forms. Reflect on their own work and that of others and become astute in analysing theatre and its dramatic forms. Develop an understanding for society and the issues arising in a modern society through a safe and focused drama led exploration. Gain confidence and build self-esteem enabling them to present themselves in a positive manner in any situation. Develop an appreciation for Drama and its place in society and the curriculum. Be inquisitive and engaged in theatrical developments through time. At Year 7 and 8 Drama is a compulsory subject with a clear focus on developing their presentation, storytelling, comprehension, personal confidence and expressive skills. At GCSE and A-Level their learning becomes far more specialised and covers stagecraft, production, naturalistic and non-naturalistic performance styles. Alongside our co-curricular school productions, theatre trips and drama clubs, we believe our programme enriches our students by giving them the opportunity to explore their own creativity, challenging them to become independent thinkers and promoting a greater understanding and appreciation of the arts.

Film Studies Curriculum Intent The study of film is an opportunity to engage with the dominant art form of the last 100 years: an art form that has spread to every corner of the globe and reflects the cultures, stories and representations of human existence. Studying film is a powerful experience that can be emotional, thrilling, illuminating and challenging. Students experience a range of responses as they are drawn into characters, their narratives and the issues films raise. The root of that power is the immersive audio-visual experience film offers – one which can exploit striking cinematography, composition and locations, powerful music and sound structured through the editing which focuses and directs the attention of the spectator. Studying film develops critical thinking through analysis of films, including: the ways in which meanings and responses are generated through film a contrasting, culturally diverse range of films from different national contexts film as an aesthetic medium how films reflect the social, cultural and political contexts in which they are made the relationship between film and film technology over time to apply knowledge and understanding of film to filmmaking or screenwriting Film Studies promotes global learning through study of diverse films from a range of cultures. It deepens historical knowledge of culture and technology and develops emotional intelligence. Alongside the critical responses, students are encouraged to explore their creativity through screenwriting and film-making. They develop independence and responsibility through planning, producing and editing filmed productions. Alongside this, they develop real world skills in writing, filming, editing and collaborating.
