In ‘A’ Level Photography, our students learn a variety of skills and techniques during their two-year course. We have an extensive range of resources that help students to communicate their ideas in response to the requirements of the specification and help develop their knowledge and understanding of this subject.
Students are assessed after each major board hand in. Each lesson is designed to maximise their progress in the darkroom, on Photoshop, experimental techniques or presenting work. Over the course of the first year, students gain experience with how to use primary and secondary research as inspiration to produce a thoughtful response to their brief. The second year builds on these skills and requires students to choose their own topic in which they produce an in-depth study of. This allows them to develop their own photographic style and showcase their work at their own Photography Exhibition at the school. Photography seeks to create a culture of high expectations where staff help students prepare themselves for a lifetime of visual imagery and photo-editing. Students will also be given the opportunity to work with film cameras, video, 3D works, laser cutters and many more techniques which helps students to express themselves and gain confidence whilst improving their expertise in Photography.
