Inspiring change for a brighter future


We are excited to offer GCSE Textiles this year as part of our ever-growing Art and Design curriculum. Pupils who chose Textiles as an option subject will produce a portfolio of work to include: artist studies, reflective annotations, development of ideas and a range of final outcomes all of which display their knowledge within the focus area.  

The freedom to express ideas is supported in the Textiles classroom where children take ownership of their studies through chosen themes and interests. Pupils will have the opportunity to experiment with different media throughout the year including embroidery, applique, embellishment, dying and an array of sewing skills. Furthermore, the topics covered during the scheme of work promote shared opinions and a wider understanding of world-wide issues such as: the environmental impact of the textiles industry and the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
