The Altius Alliance is keen to offer places for the School Direct 2017-18 cohort.
Typical departmental profile:
The Art Department consists of four large classrooms, an additional Apple Mac IT suite, and a new Sixth Form purpose built block. We currently have facilities for Ceramics, Textiles, Printmaking and Photography amongst many others. The new Sixth Form Art centre has two large teaching rooms and a photo shoot zone. The department is made up of five staff, each with different specialisms, and a technician. Specialisms include Photography, 3D Design, Fine Art and Textiles, and we encourage staff to share expertise and also teach new areas.
At KS3 students have one lesson a week in which they are taught a range of disciplines including drawing and painting, textiles, sculpture, photography, ceramics and printmaking.
At GCSE we follow the AQA specification for both Art and Design and Photography and have an outstanding track record.
We welcome trainee teachers and have in the past 12 years assisted with the training and development of a large number of trainees. We work closely with Manchester Metropolitan University and as a school have been involved in School Direct since 2012 – when the scheme first started.
