Art and Photography

Head of Department - Joint Head of Art - Mrs A Ashby and Mrs H Lee

Art at St Martin's closely follows the guidelines of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3, where all pupils are encouraged to work independently, experiment with a variety of materials and refer to other artists work. GCSE and A level students follow the AQA examination syllabus which offers opportunities for challenging, independent thinking using personal experiences as inspiration as well as developing skills and techniques.

Photography is also offered at A level and provides students the opportunity to learn about digital photography and manipulation, as well as experimenting with more traditional darkroom photography techniques.
