GCSE Photography at Les Quennevais aims to develop student’s ability to see the world in a new and interesting way. We want our students to be inquisitive and experimental in their approach to photography, using cameras to challenge the everyday perspective.
At KS4 we follow AQA GCSE Art and Design, which is an inspiring course that encourages students to consider a wide range of approaches, expressing themselves through different materials, media and techniques. Students gain understanding of composition and technical skills behind the discipline, research a range of inspiring photographers and learn interesting ways in which to edit and present their final responses. Students produce portfolio projects exploring identity, abstraction and landscapes over the course and a final project set by the exam board.
