Update from the Art Faculty
Nine months ago I thought about what this week in June would be like because this week I will be officially leaving on my maternity leave and will be due to have my baby in the next week or two which I am very excited about! I imagined I would be teaching my last lessons, saying goodbye to students and colleagues and particularly a final farewell and good future wishes to my year 11 GCSE students and year 13 A-level students whose two year learning journey is ending.

Things have turned out quite differently and the farewell was not as I or anyone else anticipated. However what has greatly impressed me was the dedication and hard work that the GCSE and A-level students continued on independently through lockdown. It was not compulsory however very beneficial for them to enter more work as their GCSE and A-levels exams were cancelled and we as teachers and moderators sat to look through their work and use our professional judgment to give them their final grades based on our predictions.

 

Moderating with my colleagues in the art department last month they were equally impressed by the overall submissions and creativity that the majority of students entered. Here are some examples of work completed during lockdown which I’m sure you’ll agree is beautiful, imaginative and original. The exam topic for GCSE art was Event and for A-level Art and Photography it was Change and/or Stability.
