The course is structured to provide a “Foundation” type program that covers all areas of the syllabus for the first six months. It is designed to give students practical experience in digital photography and film & video from which they will be able to make an informed decision about the area they wish to specialize in for their coursework. Students can select one or more areas of study from Documentary photography, Photo-journalism, Studio photography, Location photography, Experimental imagery Installation and Moving Image

Students will be introduced to different photographic techniques and genres and given a wide range of teacher-led practical assignments to broaden knowledge and to familiarize them with the content and assessment objectives of the GCSE course.

By using different photographic mediums students will explore, develop and refine both the process and their personal concept. They will become confident in taking risks and learn from experience when exploring and experimenting with ideas as well as acquiring and developing technical skills through working with a broad range of media, materials, techniques, processes and technologies.
