At King's College

Through exploration and experimentation, we encourage our pupils to be imaginative thinkers who can make decisions and communicate confidently in our increasingly visual world.

Mrs Schmidt, Head of Art

Pupils are encouraged to be experimental and discover their strengths at the same time as developing their ability to communicate ideas and solve problems.

Mrs Simpson, Art Teacher
 

Art is a thriving subject at King’s with consistently good results and a growing cohort of talented students. The diversity of the courses we offer aims to stretch creative minds and develop visual literacy.

Today’s employers are looking for creative thinkers and people who are willing to take risks. Through theme based projects pupils meet a variety of challenges and learn to independently develop ideas and formulate creative solutions. Through exploration and experimentation, we encourage our pupils to be imaginative thinkers who can make decisions and communicate confidently in our increasingly visual world.

Every year we have pupils who move on to study art related courses at university such as interior design, architecture, photography and fashion management.

Fine Art
Drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture are just some of the experiences of pupils working in the area of fine art at both GCSE and A level. Pupils are encouraged to be experimental and discover their strengths at the same time as developing their ability to communicate ideas and solve problems. All practical work is supported by contextual research and gallery visits, artist workshops and talks play a key role.

Textiles
Designing, sewing, fusing, printing and constructing are just some of the experiences of pupils working in the area of textiles. This GCSE course is hands-on and ideal for those who love being creative and are interested in fashion, surface pattern design, interior design and art–based textile design. The focus is on developing technical skills through experimentation and creativity.
