What we will do:

The Twickenham School Art Department will follow the whole school policy for curriculum provision. In addition to this, the joint department will also:

  • build on prior learning in key stages 1 and 2 in order to develop a life-long enthusiasm for the Visual Arts
  • encourage all students to consider further study in the field of Visual Arts and its many avenues of enquiry and entry to Visual Art careers post-16 and beyond
  • develop students’ interest in the Visual Arts in the wider world through activities such as cultural visits, Art and Photography clubs and competitions.

Specialist teaching

Years 7 to 11 will be taught by specialist facilitators with both industry and extended educational experience and own professional practice experience. For years 7 to 9 students are taught by the same educational specialist teacher to facilitate a consistent teaching approach. All students have an exercise book for years 7 to 9 which houses all learnt processes and theoretical components and is used as a revision tool throughout KS3.

The rationale for specialist teaching is:

  • to enable students to understand that the visual arts consist of different academic disciplines and be able to identify their interests, strength and areas for development in each.
  • to enable students to make informed choices about post-16 study and careers in the visual arts.
  • to enable the visual arts department to continue to develop a high quality curriculum that is well resourced.

Key stage 3

Twickenham School Visual Arts Department delivers key stage 3 in years 7 to 9. The curriculum complies with the national curriculum and is sequenced to ensure that topics are delivered in a logical way in order to develop students’ knowledge and skill set. The curriculum is also being developed to ensure early introduction on knowledge and skills relevant to GCSE visual arts and photography, for example, by introducing some of the required practical’s such as 3D sculpture and material based drawing techniques infused with analysis which builds understanding of complex conceptualisation.
