Art, Design & Technology

The Art, Design & Technology Faculty at Kingsdale is made up of a number of creative subjects. In the Art Department we offer GCSE Art, Textiles, Photography and Graphics. In the Design & Technology Department, we offer GCSE Design & Technology (Timber specialism) and GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition. The subjects offered within the Faculty are extremely popular with students and are successful.

All students in Key Stage 3 have a timetabled lesson in Art and two timetabled lessons in Design & Technology. During the Transition Year (Year 9) students have three timetabled lessons per week. Students in Key Stage 4 have the option to take one or more or the subjects within the Art, Design & Technology Faculty to GCSE. At Key Stage 5 students can take A levels in Art, Textiles and Photography.
