Art can be helpful to students in many ways; it can enable them to relax, express themselves, build their self-esteem and enrich other subject areas. It can open their eyes to other ways of being, develop a greater level of self-awareness and the ability to persevere. We offer GCSE Art qualifications for any student that is working at that level and work with them to develop a portfolio of work ready for future interviews.
