  • Mixed Media Experimentation

  • How to Research other Photographers and be inspired by their work.
  • How to annotate your Photos and reflect upon your practice

HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT

  • In school – Coursework will be completed in lesson time. Teachers also offer after school sessions for one-to-one tutoring.
  • At Home – The expectation is that you continue working on your sketchbook outside of lesson time every week.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

  • Examination – The exam will be a 10 hour practical exam where students will produce a final piece artwork.

WHERE CAN THIS SUBJECT TAKE ME?

GCSE Photography gives students a broad knowledge and understanding of different techniques and processes, giving students a broad skill range to take them confidently into further education.
