Graphics gives you the opportunity to learn and use a range of visual language skills using digital and hand-drawn techniques. You learn the elements of effective design by working to a series of set briefs and own personal projects.

As the course progresses you develop a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of design, gaining confidence in the use of techniques before going on to explore your own identity and areas of interest.

Graphics can be studied alongside all or either of the other art based A-level subjects.

Students go on to a wide range of Universities and Art Schools nationally to continue their studies. We have a special relationship, "Progression Accord" with the Norwich University College of the Arts, which also enables students to do so more locally.
