Art & Design
Both the Art and Design Pathway A level courses are intended to form part of a continuum which progresses naturally from GCSE in order to meet the needs of the following groups of candidates:
i) those who will undertake further studies in Art and Design.
ii) those who will study subjects or take up careers for which an Art and Design background is necessary, e.g. Architecture.
iii) those who, while having an interest and aptitude in the subject, are not intending to study the subject beyond A level.
