The Art Department at TMBSS are passionate about engaging all children in creativity and in raising self-esteem. Exploring a wide range of mediums, artists, and cultures.
At KS3 the focus is on giving pupils a broad experience, exploring media and techniques. Embedding analysis and evaluation in preparation for GCSE, and in line with the national curriculum. Our KS3 curriculum is project based, with 6 projects completed a year in 2D and 3D forms.
At KS4 we offer a pupil centered GCSE curriculum. Giving pupils the opportunity to make informed decisions about their project focus. We offer Photography, Textiles, Fine Art, 3D design, and Graphic Communication. For those pupils arriving with us too late for GCSE entry, we have levels of Arts Award which gives pupils experience in producing artwork, reviewing, teaching a skill, and researching an artist.
Throughout they year we also facilitate themed activities in secondary. These have an SMSC focus and give pupils opportunities for collaboration.
