We believe photography gives students a way to make sense of and change their world. The Photography department believes in a curriculum that promotes diversity and independent thinking. Through understanding each pupil’s individual learning style, we create engaging content and teaching methods to meet and stretch the needs of our learners. We are proud to have created a curriculum that reflects our school community with one foot in the past and one in the present that encourages student’s creativity and curiosity within the creative arts.
Over the course of the two years, students learn about a range of genres within photography. The projects studied in Year 10 are:
– Nature and the City
The projects studied in Year 11 are:
– Independent project (Based on the previous year’s exam)
– Exam project
Students learn industry-level editing techniques in Photoshop and some analogue processes. All year 10 students go on a trip to the Roding and the Thames in their first term to take photographs for their Unit 1 project. The Photography department has arranged visits to art galleries and creative workshops at renowned institutions such as The Photographers gallery, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, the National Portrait Gallery and The Royal Academy of Arts.
