A-level Art and Design lays excellent foundations for a career in the creative industries, although the ability to 'think outside the box' and the observational skills learnt through this subject are considered valuable in a whole spectrum of professions. There are many art-related career paths that Art A-level can ultimately lead to, although even for those students focusing on more scientific subjects, Art can provide a welcome and useful contrast that equips them with a complementary set of skills.

By studying A-level Art, students can then access an Art Foundation course which equips them with the final qualification required to start an Art and Design related degree in the UK.



Art is about exploring your inner passion. Yours is unique to you.

We’ll give you’re the space and encouragement to develop your own skills, interests and specialisms.
