The Key Stage 3 curriculum is designed so that students acquire a range of knowledge, understanding and skills within Art and Design. Projects have been carefully planned so that students build up on their prior knowledge, understanding and skills and make progress throughout this key stage. We provide opportunities for students to experiment with different materials, media, techniques and processes throughout every project. Students are encouraged to broaden their understanding and knowledge of different periods in history, art movements and the course covers many different artists/ designers that are relevant to their studies.
Within Key Stage 3 students are assessed on their Knowledge and understanding as well as their skills within their research, observational studies, design and final outcomes across all projects.
All Key Stag 3 students are assessed using ARE's, the criteria for each grading can be seen on the slides below.
