Our GCSE 3D Design results (June 2023) were again in the top 25% of the country, which is a true reflection of the passion shared by our teachers and students. We have sustained these results since 2015/16 through continuous subject development, reflection and refinement, to ensure all students, across all key stages, enjoy their Art education and are successful, happy learners.
