A Brief Introduction to the Art Department


All students at Telford Priory School have the opportunity to take part in Art lessons in Key Stage 3. It is an excellent subject to promote creativity, confidence, and independence, researching skills, idea development and thinking skills.

We offer extra-curricular clubs that help Key stage 4 with their GCSE course, and key stage 3 with practical and written support.

Year 7: Tone, Colour, Texture, Detail, Shape Maps, Natural Form, and Portraits.

Year 8: Pattern, Symbolism, Figures, and Architecture.

Year 9: Letter forms, Natural form, Abstract Art, Texture and Comic Books.

At KS4 Students complete a GCSE through coursework (60%) and an exam unit (40%) to develop more specific talents and abilities and enable our young people to leave The Telford Priory School with the knowledge and skills to go on to higher education and careers in the Arts.  

GCSE Art (AQA exam board).
