Art

In Year 7 a foundation of colour theory, the art formal elements and art skills are embedded. These skills are then practised and developed along with a broader knowledge of materials. In Years 8 students cover a variety of topics creating art for exhibition purpose - the Chinese New Year in the LRC, the Arts Evening, War Remembrance Service and the KS3 end of year exhibition. Students are encouraged to take risks, try new things and become independent workers.

Haydock Curriculum

The pace of curriculum change continues to accelerate, for example introducing a more flexible Key Stage 3. Our constant planning offers confidence for successful delivery and assessment of these areas.
